Models of all ages, shapes and sizes strutted their stuff at a spectacular charity fashion show.

The Firefly extravaganza at The Dome in Doncaster is an annual event which raises funds to keep the Firefly organisations’ two minibuses on the road.

This year the show - which featured special guest appearances by Chelsea Pensioners - helped raise funds to buy a third bus to add to the fleet that operates a free service to take Doncaster cancer patients to Sheffield specialist hospitals for day treatment.

The service helps ease the psychological, physical and financial stress faced by patients and their families.

Firefly has gone from strength to strength, raising £36,000 this year including donations of £17,000 from Doncaster insurance company One Call and £2,000 from supermarket giant Sainsbury’s.
