Car dealer gets in gear for fashion show

Cardiff’s leading motor dealership Sinclair Volkswagen is revving up to support The Show – the first ever Breast Cancer Care fundraising fashion show to be held in Wales.

The catwalk event, taking place at Cardiff City Hall on 24 February, joins the London and Scotland Shows in celebrating fashion and fundraising.

Charity supporters attending the event will be in with a chance of winning a night in a top luxury hotel and the use of a stunning Volkswagen Eos two-door convertible for May Bank Holiday weekend in a live auction both prizes sponsored by Sinclair Volkswagen Cardiff.

Helen Griffiths, fundraiser for Breast Cancer Care Cymru, said: “We are very grateful to Sinclair Volkswagen for donating these fabulous prizes and really appreciate their generous support.

“We are so excited to be bringing The Show to Cardiff. The event has been tremendously successful in London and Scotland and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to bring it to Wales.

“All of the models taking part in the fashion show have had a diagnosis of breast cancer so, in addition to raising funds and awareness, the message of the event is one of hope – there is life after breast cancer and you can still feel sexy and glamorous, even after surgery.”

The Show event is supported by women and men who have experienced a diagnosis of breast cancer and share the same determination to radiate beauty, energy and style in spite of their breast cancer experience.

Richard Seaward, brand manager for Sinclair Volkswagen Cardiff, added: “We are honoured to be able to support this very worthy cause by sponsoring the star prizes and hope that the event is a huge success, raising significant funds for Breast Cancer Care.”

The prize includes the use of a Volkswagen Eos from 1-3May1, as well as an overnight stay for two people at the prestigious Hurst Hotel on the Marsh, Llangharne2, including champagne on arrival, breakfast, afternoon tea and a three-course evening meal. Guests are also able to enjoy the hotel’s indoor pool and gym facilities.

The last few remaining tickets for The Show are available at £80 each or bookable as a table of ten for £800 from the Breast Cancer Care special events team on 020 7960 3554.
