CHRIST COLLEGE HOSTED A CELEBRATORY SEQUINS AND SPARKLES AFTERNOON TEA AND FASHION SHOW ON SATURDAY.
In a collaboration with the Society of Friends of Christ College, the Old Breconian Association and the school helped host a unique fundraising celebratory Afternoon Tea and Fashion Show on Saturday afternoon.
With so much to celebrate, including the 475th Anniversary of the School’s founding by King Henry VIII in 1541 and the 30th Anniversary of girls studying at Christ College the three areas of the Christ College community pulled together to host a fun afternoon.
With our home grown models, namely Mrs McLean, Mrs Doran, Mrs Sandhu and Mrs Copp, modelling wonderful fashions from Loulou Boutique based at Pyle Garden Centre, there were many oohs and aahhs from the audience at the sight of such incredibly beautiful clothes. This was all thanks to Jayne James, former BBC Wales news presenter, and owner of Loulou Boutique. With the James family a bit of a Christ College dynasty in their own right, Jayne’s help in providing the fashions, hosting the event and volunteering her lovely sister Deb, as one of the models was invaluable.
The Society of Friends had worked tirelessly to deck Y Neuadd Goffa – The Memorial Hall out as a luxurious, sparkling venue for afternoon tea which was provided by the catering staff at Christ College. A huge thank you must go to all those who helped, including the valiant School House Upper Sixth who volunteered their services as waiters, and escorts for the models – they all looked very hansome in their black ties. With over £3,000 raised to support the school’s 475th Anniversary project – which is a Eco Reserve and learning resource for future generations, it was a great success all round.
Entertainment was provided by Christ College pupil, Peter Bowen and his mum and Friends Secretary, Ruth Bowen. Upper Sixth Drama student, Daniel Gray, also performed some songs from the shows accompanied by Mr Jonathan Cooper. After his rendition of Bring Him Home, from Les Miserables, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
