FASHION took over the Dr Peter Centre last Friday night (27th March), as SNAG (Special Needs Advisory Group) and M&Co Romsey hosted a fashion show. The event was held to raise funds for SNAG, a group within Romsey Scouts, promoting opportunities within Scouting for those with special needs and showing that Scouting is truly for all.
SNAG promotes equality and inclusion for young people that require special needs within Scouting. Its current focus is on a buddies scheme, where volunteers pair up with a young person with special needs and attend their scouting activities alongside them, providing support. Romsey District Scouts are keen to further ensure one of their founding principles- equality- is demonstrated, and the work of the SNAG group, chaired by Portia Kitcher, is making fantastic progress.
The fashion show comprised of 13 volunteers modelling around 70 outfits, with commentary by Kitcher. With on-the-door takings of £180 and raffle funds of £100, £280 was raised throughout the evening, which ran from 19:00-21:30, tickets costing £5 each.
SNAG would like to thank M&Co Romsey and staff for their generosity; the clothes store lent over 70 outfits for the show and 5 staff members came to model the clothes, which ranged from smart to casual and included their new children’s range.
Overall, the SNAG team “are very pleased” with the funds raised.
