A splendid night of sustainable fashion raises money for Friends For Families

The Sevenoaks charity Friends For Families recently held their biggest fundraising event to date, Fashion with Friends. A fabulous evening of sustainable fashion in which over 120 people enjoyed canapes, bubbles, and shopping.

The event turned out to be a tremendous success, with all tickets selling out and a total of £5,000 having been raised so far.

‘We know that many local families will find this coming winter exceedingly difficult, so to be able to raise this amount of money is going to be tremendously helpful,’ said Kelly Barlow, Friends for Family trustee and event organiser.

The Friends For Families team were thrilled to meet an abundance of faces all coming together to support this worthy cause. With a stream of positive feedback filtering in, it is clear that the event’s attendees relished in the evening’s delights:

“Had a blast last night. Am wearing a new top today and cool jacket! Would love it if you did this again at some point.”

“Thank you so much to you all for a fabulous event. It was a huge undertaking and I hope it raised lots of funds for F4F. Certainly from the buzz in the room it should have.”

Friends For Families would particularly like to thank their sponsors and supporters, Manak Solicitors, @thehappygrazingcompany, Tubs Hill Dry Cleaners, Amy Hall of @hallandco, Karen Savage from @the_style_house_brasted, Fleur McCrone of @stylistfleur, @bellarosalingerie, @meadowskincareuk and Emeline @thelodgeatriverhead.

Through their inspiring efforts to help the many families struggling to stay afloat through vibrant events like this one, the charity’s ongoing success is instrumental in providing a pillar of support to the hidden poverty among the Sevenoaks community.

With lockdown now having lifted, undoubtedly there will be more exciting fundraisers on the horizon to help shine a little ray of hope to those in need of Friends For Families’ commendable services.
