" Please support my fundraising campaign. "

CAMPAIGN ENDED

This Campaign must reach the funding target of 1250 GBP by 12.10pm on 04.10.2012, BST for it to be successful.

Find out more about how ZEQUS works for supporters.

Hi Please Funders have a look at our pitch.

“People think people with Learning Disabilities are scruffy and look down on us”

But we think ….

Fashion is fun.

Fashion is colourful.

Fashion is personal.

Fashion tells the world something about you.

Fashion builds confidence.

Confidence goes with pride and being proud of who you are and what you have done, matters.

We want to build confidence, self-esteem and have fun by hosting four fashion workshops and a fashion show.  Along with building skills and artistic flare for 10 – 15 learning disabled people.

Learning Disabled people have little opportunity to express themselves freely through the clothes they wear. This is an opportunity for them to work with an image consultant and put their mark on an individual outfit.

Its shows the world what you can achieve, that you are creative and have talent.

The workshops will culminate in a fashion event where people can go down the catwalk and be photographed by a professional photographer.

At the show we will have homemade cakes and biscuits made by our members.

Budget breakdown

Image Consultant  £500.00
Materials  £250.00
Photographer  £100.00
Refreshments  £150.00
General costs  £250.00

Total   £1,250.00
