It's one of the biggest fundraisers of the year, but Tamworth Evening VIEW Club's fashion parade was just as much about fun as it was doing good.
The Saturday morning event at the Tamworth Jockey club drew a crowd of dozens
President Merilyn Binney attributed the solid turnup to a year off during the pandemic.
"It's fantastic. Everybody wants to come out because we haven't been able to have any fundraisers - last year we had none at all - so this year we're having to make up what we missed out on last year," she said.
The club raises money to help put underprivileged children through school.
They're currently supporting five and working on a sixth, she said.
"We'd like to raise $2000 [today] if we can," she said.
Dresses and clothes were donated by Tamworth's Town and Country Boutique, who also organised the models.
The all-women club is set to hold its next events in May, with a day at Tamworth's art gallery, and then a musical afternoon in August.
All events raise money to help with the cause, she said.
"It's a worthwhile cause because we're helping kids go through who probably wouldn't have," she said.
"[The fashion parade is] one of our biggest fundraisers."
