A fashion show held by a networking group has raised money for a dementia charity.

Wayland Women in Business held the event at Broom Hall Country Hotel in Saham Toney, near Watton.

Women from businesses across Wayland took part as models and a total of £540 was raised for the Wayland Memory Cafe, formerly known as the dementia cafe.

Debbie Harris, from Wayland Women in Business, said: “We are always looking to give something back. The cafe is local and we wanted to support them through our fashion show.”

Clothes were provided by Artichoke, which has a shop in Swaffham, and money was raised from ticket sales and a raffle.

Eileen Kittell, a volunteer for the memory cafe, said: “There is a real need for this lifeline in the Wayland area. It is brilliant that Wayland Women in Business have raised this money and it will help keep us going for the next year.”
