On 25th September, the Club, in association with L'Armoire of Llanidloes, held a Fashion Show at The Marine Hotel to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. With over 200 tickets sold, the evening raised a total of £2,756 including a Matched Funding contribution of £750 from Barclays Bank.
The Rotarians donned their Dinner Jackets to add to the fun of the evening, some being persuaded to join the models on the catwalk! Local businesses kindly gave raffle prizes and the Aberystwyth Arts Centre provided the staging for the catwalk.The Show took place on a beautiful late September evening and was enjoyed by all.
