HAMPSHIRE’S exclusive boutique Moda Rosa staged a spectacular fashion show and raised over £37,000 for Breast Cancer Haven, Wessex.

The Titchfield-based charity provides specialist support to anyone affected by breast cancer.

Over 250 customers, VIPs and celebrities attended the prestigious event hosted by Steve and Linda Garnett at their home, Bighton House near Alresford.

Guests enjoyed an English sparkling wine reception before being treated to a contemporary dance duet performed introduced by BBC South Today presenter, Sally Taylor.

The event was compered by ITV’s Alastair Stewart with professional models walking the runway showcasing the latest Spring/ Summer 19 collections from designers such as Temperley London, Amanda Wakeley, Roksanda, Emilia Wickstead, Paul Smith, Paule Ka and Diane Von Furstenburg with hats by Philip Treacy and Vivien Sheriff.

There was a high value raffle and an entertaining live auction by professional auctioneer, Henry McCowen of BCM Rural Property Specialists who managed to sell some incredible ‘Money Can’t Buy’ lots generating over £16,000 alone for the charity.

Breast Cancer Haven provides a carefully designed programme of treatments such as acupuncture, reflexology, counselling, nutrition advice and hypnotherapy.

Fundraising manager Sally Hilllyear said, “It costs £1000 to treat each visitor and so this incredible amount of money will enable us to support many people affected by this devastating disease.”
