The models are all customers who are giving up their time for free, and there will be live entertainment hosted by Kirby from The Voice and X Factor.

Rosa and Christine, of So You Boutique, said: “We have been open now for five years in the town, and this is a great opportunity to thank customers for their support.

“We hold this event each year and it goes down extremely well with the audience, as it is real women that they see wearing our outfits.

“It’s always hard work but such good fun – quite often turning into a dance session afterwards!

“All we want to achieve is awareness of such a good charity based within our town and make for a memorable evening.

“Reclaim Life work on the positives for people in need, but on the emotional side.”

Doors open at 7.15pm and the fashion show starts at 8pm.

Tickets are available from So You Boutique and raffle prizes have been donated by local shops.

Reclaim Life offers five free sessions of life coaching, see
