A charity fashion show is to be held at Fairfield High School in Droylsden, in memory of a former student.

The Anja Barnacott Fashion Show takes place at the Fairfield Avenue school on Friday, November 18, in honour of Anja – who passed away from Hodgkin’s lymphoma at the age of 19 in 2009.

All proceeds from the event will go to CLIC Sargent, a charity that directly supports children and young people with cancer.

The event, which will showcase the Winter collection from Lucy Cobb Fashion Boutique, is the latest fundraiser organised by Anja’s Fund – which has so far raised more than £10,000 for local charities.

Laura Ferguson, Anja’s sister and one of the event organisers, said: “Anja had a real love of fashion so this is the perfect way to celebrate her life while raising vital funds to help an amazing charity.

“CLIC Sargant were a fantastic source of support to both Anja and our family, and we want to make sure they can continue their work to provide crucial support to young people who have been diagnosed with cancer.

“It’s going to be a great night to raise money for a brilliant charity and remember a beautiful young woman.”

The event at the school starts at 7pm.

Tickets, which are £6 and include a welcome drink, can be bought on the door or by e-mailing [email protected] or visiting the Anja’s Fund Facebook page.
