THE Bridge Centre in Tullamore was transformed into a Fantasy Fashion catwalk last Saturday afternoon when dramatic make up, vintage clothing and funky footwear were all combined in an effort to generate public awareness for the Tullamore Community Arts Centre fund raising campaign.
Photographer Bernadette Chalke co-ordinated the event with the help of numerous shops within the Bridge Centre and vintage fashions from Gladys Adams. The models were all from the Sacred Heart School while their make up was beautifully applied by Susan and Jackie in Dolan’s Pharmacy.
Saturday’s spectacle was just one of many events scheduled over the next few weeks to promote the campaign for the Tullamore Community Arts Centre. Forthcoming events will include art exhibitions, music and dance recitals all by local groups.
Fund raising committee chairman Paddy Fenning this week urged the public to avail of the “Early Bird” draw prizes. Everyone who subscribes before October 31 will be entered into a special Early Bird draw with extra cash prizes.
The main draw takes place on December 19 and is limited to 2,000 members. Prizes on offer include a Nissan Qashqai car along with generous cash prizes.
“We’re on target now and we’ve started into the second half of this campaign,” added Paddy. “This is an investment in the future of Tullamore.”
