The biggest fashion and style event ever staged in Taunton, The Retail Therapy Fashion Show, will be taking place at the Somerset County Cricket Club on Wednesday February 27th and its all in aid of Breast Cancer.


Jennie Bond, famed BBC Royal Correspondent and recent presenter of Cash In The Attic, will be starring in the show and making a special introduction . Top attractions on the catwalk will be Olympic Torch Bearer, Paula Cannings, herself a breast cancer survivor, and popular Olympic Silver Medalist, Debbie Criddle. The fashion show will be hosted by rural and gardening broadcaster and journalist, Rebecca Pow, swapping her usual wellies for some kitten heels!


Organised by local retail entrepreneur, Jo Southcombe, who runs a chain of Retail Therapy fashion shops throughout the West Country, including shops in Taunton, Castle Cary and Sidmouth, is organising the exciting event:


It will be a whole evening focusing on fashion and making women feel and look stunning. There will be a range of health and beauty demonstrations and accessory stands to enjoy as well as the big cat walk focal point showcasing gorgeous clothes for every age and size. Tickets are selling fast so do get yours soon!


Theres a great team pulling together to raise as much money as we can for Breast Cancer says Rebecca Pow, almost everyone knows someone who has suffered from this disease, and this is our way of helping raise money to try and combat it.


All the money raised will go to two local breast cancer causes: The Beacon Centre in Taunton, and to Jill Murrays fund for an OSNA (Intra-Operative-Node-Analysis) machine for Taunton, which is the latest technique for helping breast cancer patients potentially avoid a second operation.


The Retail Therapy Fashion Show: February 27th, Somerset County Cricket Club, St James St Taunton .
