Huge Thanks To Chloe James Lifestyle

Hi All,

The fundraising event and fashion show last night was an amazing success, having sold out earlier in the week still more people came along on the night it seems. Raffle tickets sold well too and are still on sale for the next few days at the Chloe James shop in the High Street or by phone on 01727 843431. Lots of fantastic prizes all donated by amazingly generous local businesses.

We must say a huge thank you to everyone who came last night, or bought a raffle ticket, donated a prize, provided services for the models or generally gave up their time to help out. The most important thanks go to the staff, models, and customers, of Chloe James Lifestyle and the Cote Brasserie for all of the hard work that went into organising the event and inviting us to participate.

Such a lovely night and proof that St Albans is a vibrant and caring city full of generous people.

Thank you one and all,

The Crescent Team
