The Pamper and Ladies Fashion Night at Brooklands School on 19th November was a huge success, raising a whopping £3500 for Brain Tumour Research. That takes Nicole’s fundraising total to over £10,000.
Over 200 were present at the Night, which was a tribute to Colin Mackenzie, a well-known local man who passed away due to a brain tumour earlier this year. His family were there to see MP Andrew Selous open the evening and to hear a solo sung in his memory by Emily Nathan, aged 13, with her father Craig, the Head of Music at Aylesbury Grammar School.
The rest of the evening was a string of highlights, including catwalk appearances by Nicole Witts and Lorraine Bateman (spraytanned by Expressions Beauty), a comedy striptease by compere Jeremy Fletcher, and the charity auctioning of a “well-toned and tanned man” for a date.
The fashion show featured models wearing autumn winter collections from Leighton shops Daisie Lane, Kings Road, Rubies Shoes and Jules Accessories. Nicole returned to the stage to front up a lingerie show from Petticoat Lane.
The evening climaxed in an X-Factor style show pitting Leighton against Linslade and featuring special guest Hazel O’Connor. Leighton’s answer to Simon Cowell, Kevin Nicholls, was ready with trumpet ready to sound out a duff note if performances fell below the high standards he demanded of them!
I wish to thank those who got involved and made such an incredible fun night. From start to finish everyone was full of enthusiasm, charisma and fun which produced a good buzz and laughter to make it a memorable night. I am proud of all the Leighton and Linslade businesses involved.
