Last thursday night, I was invited to the Merchant Square Fashion Show in Glasgow. It was for a great cause, and helped raise money for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice in Glasgow. If you don't know much about Hospices; it's basically a place for very ill people to enjoy their remaining time in a very holistic way - aiming to meet all of their emotional, social and spiritual needs while providing palliative nursing care. There are hospices all up and down the country, and they're always looking volunteers and running charity events and extravaganzas - I'd highly recommend getting involved because they do such fantastic work! The Prince and Princess of Wales hospice is currently raising money as they are building a new Hospice in an area of Glasgow that will allow the patients to enjoy outdoors a lot more (weather permitting of course), and it will have more modern facilities.
House of Fraser provided the clothing for the show, and I have to admit there are a few things I've got my eye on come pay day (pics of my faves below). I keep saying this recently because at the end of the month I'm going to get my first "proper" pay since I've left uni and started my "real" job - at this rate it'll last half a day. They had a raffle with all proceeds going to the hospice and were taking donations in exchange for a goody bag. I am a bit skint at the minute and couldn't donate as much as I'd have liked, but at least I contributed a little. I spend some time in St Margarets Hospice as a student nurse, and it's something that's so important for the terminally ill - there's a completely different vibe to a hospital and sometimes it's just a better environment for the patient. I'm so glad that I got to go to this event, it makes my heart feel good when I know people are striving to do something good for other people. How soppy of me!
