Charity Fashion Show to take place in Ringwood

The Churchill Foundation‘s “Charity Fashion Show” is coming once again this year to the Furlong Shopping Centre on Thursday 7th November from 5.30pm to 8pm. The evening of fashion, fun and fizz is in aid of the Wave 105 “Mission Christmas” appeal, with up to 20% exclusive discount on new Autumn / Winter collections at selected stores (for ticket holders).

Organised by the charitable arm of Ringwood housebuilder Churchill Retirement Living, and supported by Frettens and Buchannan Marquees, the fashion show will take place inside a heated festively decorated marquee in the Furlong courtyard. The ticket price includes a glass of bubbly and canapés on arrival, live music, up to 20% off in participating stores, and entry to the fashion show.

Local stores taking part include Oasis, Phase Eight, Fat Face, Crew Clothing, Hobbs London, Osprey London and Joules. Other stores including Furlong Furniture and more will be opening late and offering exclusive discounts on the night.

There will also be a raffle with a range of fantastic prizes generously donated by local businesses and Churchill Foundation partners.

Tickets cost £10 in advance, and are available from Ringwood’s Boston Tea Party, Grants Estate Agents, and Furlong Furniture, or by emailing

Spencer and Clinton McCarthy, Churchill Retirement Living Co-Founders and Trustees of the Churchill Foundation, said:

Wave 105’s Mission Christmas appeal makes a huge difference for disadvantaged kids who find this time of year especially tough, so we’re delighted to be teaming up with the Furlong Shopping Centre once again to deliver this exciting event here in Ringwood. There are some great bargains to be had on the night, friends and family are welcome and it’s all for an important cause, so I’d encourage everyone to purchase tickets soon and join us for what promises to be a great evening.

With nearly one in four children across the UK living in poverty this December, for many families Christmas is simply a luxury they can’t afford. Wave 105’s Mission Christmas appeal was set up to help the thousands of disadvantaged children in our local area who are in danger of waking up to no presents on Christmas morning.
