Valli Opticians hosts charity fashion show

The independent optical group has raised funds for Macmillan Yorkshire

Valli fashion show
Valli Opticians has partnered with local fashion boutique Dragonfly to host its third fashion show fundraiser in aid of Macmillan Yorkshire.

Due to the success of previous shows, the event moved to the larger Hebden Bridge Town Hall for its show last week, raising more than £3000 for charity.

Over 120 tickets were sold for the summer explosion-themed event, which showcased Dragonfly’s spring/summer clothing. Outfits were accessorised with sunglasses and spectacles supplied by Valli Opticians.

Director and co-owner of Valli Opticians, Rachel Valli, highlighted: “Opticians play a vital role in local communities and, as a company, we have always placed great importance on collaborating with other businesses to enhance the towns where our practices are based.

“Our fashion shows have become really popular in the town and we are delighted to have raised over £3000 for such a worthwhile cause.”
