INSPIRATIONAL cancer patients took to the catwalk at the annual Aurora Fashion Show raising thousands for charity.

The Aurora Centre is now celebrating after hosting the event that has already matched last year’s £18,000 total.

Aurora project manager Alison Luscombe said: “We’re not sure on a final figure as yet but money is still coming in and we are confident we’ll equal last year’s total which is fantastic especially given the economic climate.

“We’ve had the best feedback this year from people and the atmosphere was electric.

“We’ve been to 99 per cent of the rehearsals but just to see the models up their on the nights dressed in all the clothes that the retailers kindly lent us was really something special. Everyone involved has put such hard work in.”

The Aurora Centre, based in Doncaster Royal infirmary, offers complementary professional beauty therapy treatments for cancer patients in Doncaster.

There are still some raffle prizes from the event that are unclaimed. For a full list of winners contact the Aurora Centre on 01302 381302.
