The Aurora Fashion Show celebrated its 10th Anniversary performing to a sell out audience, at the Doncaster Dome on the 17th and 18th of May.
Thousands supported this truly inspirational event which featured fashion from leading retailers. The show was once again sponsored by Perrys and supported by other local businesses, plus funds raised by the models and their families throughout the year.
The DRI consultants and Doncaster GP’s had the crowd joining in and singing along with their outstanding scene.
Eva Hughes, retired Civic Mayor, presented a cheque for £5000 to Lynne Rothwell, Aurora Chair, the funds she has raised during her year in office.
But the tribute of the night must be awarded to the Aurora models, an outstanding team who have all been brought together by Aurora, with one common link, they have all suffered from cancer.
The audience cheered as colourful, glamorous and dramatic fashion was shown to well known music which had everyone clapping and joining in.
The Aurora kids team wowed the audience with spectacular dance routines. The Aurora men were downright cheeky, the lingerie from Debenhams was sassy and sexy, and the brides and grooms were breath taking.
Powerful, fun and emotional scenes had the audience captivated from start to finish. The models wore red white and blue for the finale, which was performed to ‘I’m Still Standing', sung by Rob McVeigh.
Rule Britannia had the audience on their feet singing along and waving union flags, followed by Auld Lang Syne, sung by everyone in memory of friends the Aurora have lost.
So far the show has raised £22,500 which will allow Aurora to continue to support local people, and their families, living with cancer.
