FORTY patients are getting ready to hit the fashion catwalk.
The patients, under the Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust, are preparing to take part in the fourth annual show organised by the award-winning breast cancer nursing team.
Veronica Allinson and Julie Bottomley are the specialist nurses organising the event, which will be on Monday, September 22, at Cedar Court Hotel, Ainley Top.
The show is always a hugely popular, emotional event, aiming to boost confidence and bring patients together to share their experiences.
Great grandma Jennie Henderson, 88, from Elland, is one of the models taking part.
She said: “When they first asked me I thought they were joking. But after meeting Julie and the rest of the team I was persuaded to take part. People have said that if I take part once I will want to do it again.”
Veronica, said: “It is simply a wonderful evening for everyone involved and the Trust is proud to be able to host it for our pat-ients. We would again thank everyone who year after year give us the designer outfits and backstage support which help make it the success it is.”
