LADIES GOLF DAY RAISES MONEY

GOLFING fashions were given the catwalk treatment to raise money for charity.

A fashion show was held by The Ladies Golf Boutique at Lutterworth Golf Club before Christmas and about £100 was raised through ticket and clothing sales.

The proceeds will be donated to the Robbie Anderson Cancer Trust, the charity chosen by Lutterworth’s Lady Captain Bernie Dolan.

The fashion show attracted more than 70 people, and saw club members swap the fairway for the catwalk to model next season’s new attire.

Leanne Bayliss set up the boutique in September, to offer lady golfers a wider range of clothing, and she was also behind the idea for the fashion show, which was part inspired from adverts of women golfers seen whilst golf betting online.

“The fashion show was set up for two reasons,” she said. “We wanted to raise money for the Lady Captain’s Charity, whilst showing ladies what’s on offer in our shop next year. The clothes modelled were from the spring/summer 2011 collections of all the leading golf brands, which we will be selling in our boutique.”
