A CHARITY fashion show has helped to raise more than £10,000 in memory of a Millom teenager.

On Saturday the Beggars Theatre was packed out for the Skye Full Of Stars tonight to raise money for the charity set up following the death of 18-year-old Skye Mitchell in 2017.

The charity awards grants to young people to allow them to achieve their ambitions.

Men, women and children took part in a fashion show with 41 models ranging in age from five to 75, with themes including A Day in the Lakes, Red Carpet, The Office, Saturday Night Takeaway and Skye's 21st Birthday Party.

Skye's mum Sharon Fry said the event raised an incredible £1,750.

"Thank you to everyone who came to our fashion show on Saturday at The Beggars Theatre," she said.

"Entertainment was by the fantastic singer Amy-Jo Clough and Freya Lupton closed the show with a beautiful performance of A Sky Full of Stars.

"We raised an amazing £1,750 and we are grateful to the many businesses and local people who donated prizes for our raffle and to all who bought tickets.

"We would like to give a big thank you to Mark Jones (the regional heats manager of Miss England) and the five pageant girls who travelled up and added that extra bit of glamour to the show.

"A big thank you to our amazing models some whom have been with the fashion show since Skye first organised hers five years ago, some regular faces and some new ones. Without you all our show wouldn’t have been possible. You provided glamour, fun and lots of laughs for the audience to enjoy.

"We thank the people of Millom for donating so many beautiful clothes. We will be having a stall this Saturday at Millom Christmas Market in the square where we will be selling a variety of the clothes. We will also be holding a coffee morning/Pre loved clothes sale in the Guide Hall on 18th January. Please come and support us on Saturday at the market and pick up a beautiful bargain – men's, ladies and children's clothes all for sale.

"Thanks again for your continuous support to our charity and helping us award grants to children and young people totalling over £10,000."
