Designer label boosts funds


Discounted clothing from fashion retailer Boden will be on offer during a fundraiser.

People are being invited to the Hospice of St Francis on Thursday for an evening of wine, cake and shopping.

Supporters will pay £5 to attend the Northchurch event – running from 6pm to 9pm – which includes wine and snacks.

There will be a jewellery and cake sale, raffle, Champneys tombola and a Boden sale including clothes for women, men and children.

Boden is giving commission from any sales on the night to the hospice and all other funds raised will go to the charity in Spring Garden Lane.

Volunteer Naomi Mocatta said: “We hope to raise lots of money.”
