Staff from Simply Gorgeous Beauty Salon on St Alban’s Road, in St Annes, organised the Pimms and Pamper evening at St Annes Ex Servicemen’s Club to donate towards the Marie Curie charitable organisation, which provides care and support for patients and their families through terminal illness.

Zoe Sturrock and Shauni Houghton, from the Simply Gorgeous salon, organised the fundraising event, which included a swim-wear and lingerie fashion show – and they also modelled a couple of outfits themselves.

The night was attended by 60 women.
