Young mum Jasmine Norton has organised a night of fashion and fun, in aid of a good cause close to her heart.

The mum-of-one, who runs Jasmine’s Boutique, from her home in Poulton, has decided to hold a ladies’ night and catwalk show to raise funds for Trinity Hospice.

The 22-year-old, who has a five-month-old son Noah, says she is delighted with the way local businesses and the community have come together to support her idea.

The night, to be held at Uber, on Vicarage Road, Poulton, will include a Champagne reception, a raffle, selection of stalls – including clothing, swimwear and jewellery – free sweets and cupcakes, goody bags and a catwalk show, featuring clothing lines for this season from Jasmine’s Boutique.

The evening, on April 3, will be hosted by drag queen The Vivienne, and there will be entertainment from special guests and a DJ.

Jasmine said: “I wanted to do something to raise money for Trinity, it’s such a good cause.

“A few members of my family have been there and you hear of so many people and families who have connections with Trinity.

“I think it’s a charity which is close to everybody’s hearts.

“It looks like there will be more than 100 people coming along.”

Jasmine added: “I started up my business just after my baby was born, selling ready-to-wear clothing lines, but also made-to-measure and bespoke items, such as bridesmaid dresses, prom dresses. I also do swimwear.

“I have models who do a bit of modelling for me, and I thought it would be a nice idea to get a catwalk show together. The models are kindly giving their time for free, which I really appreciate.

“The idea really is to show the different collections and raise money at the same time.

“Plus, it’s always good to have an excuse to have a girls’ night.

“Tickets are £5, and that includes a fantastic goody bag with items donated by local companies, and we are also holding a big raffle with some great prizes.

“I’ve got other local shops and businesses on-board too.

“It’s great the community is coming together for a local event to help a local charity.”

Jasmine is also planning a girls’s night in, a pamper night which will include nail and other beauty treatments, with funds going to Trinity, to take place a couple of weeks after the fashion show.
