A BOUTIQUE has proved to be in fashion with a charity after it handed over £14,000 raised at its annual catwalk show.

Robinson’s of Bawtry has now raised a staggering £200,000 for Yorkshire Cancer Research (YCR) since it first started the fashion shows 18 years ago.

The South Parade store hosted it glamourous evening at China Rose restaurant which featured designs from Duchamp, Armani, Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood as well as raffle and auction.

Doncaster Rovers footballer George Friend, who is sponsored by Robinson’s helped hand over the money to the charity.

Robinson’s previous owner Tony Robinson started the event following the death of his first wife to cancer.
