Imps’ players taking to fashion show catwalk for charity

Lincoln City football players and club staff will take to the catwalk next month as part of a charity fashion show.

The club will support the Waterside Shopping Centre’s second Charity Fashion Show on Wednesday, September 25. The event starting at 7pm will raise money for St Barnabas Hospice.

Tickets are now on sale priced at £6 and can be purchased online here. It includes a glass of fizz on arrival and a goody bag.

They will join amateur models to showcase Lincoln’s hottest Autumn Winter fashion collections from H&M, Roman, New Look, Yours, Topshop/Topman, Next and Skechers. Staff and volunteers from St Barnabas will also be modelling.

Lincoln’s own Talking Heads salon will also provide a glamorous hair show showcasing their most exciting styles.

The 2018 event raised over £1,000 for St Barnabas and the organisers are hoping to surpass that total this year.

All the profits from the night will be donated to the charity, which was established as a charitable trust in 1979 and runs 26 charity shops across the county.

Liam Scully, Lincoln City CEO, said: “Our new city centre store has proved incredibly popular since it opened and we’re keen to play an active role in supporting the Waterside and its charity of the year, St Barnabas Hospice.

“I hope there’s a good turnout for the event as all of the money raised will be used to help in the local community.”

Dean Cross, General Manager at the Waterside Shopping Centre, added: “Hopefully we can build on the success of last year and raise even more money for St Barnabas this year.

“Our retailers are right behind the event, and it will be great to see them all glammed up and walking down the catwalk.

“It promises to be a great night, and we’d like to see even more people than last year come along and support St Barnabas, as they do amazing work across the county.”
