Fancy some style advice for the new season and the chance to help charity?
A personal styling session and coffee morning is being held at John Lewis Peterborough in aid of Parkinson’s UK.
The department store in Queensgate is hosting the event on Wednesday September 30 where their personal stylists in Womenswear will be showcasing the latest looks for Autumn/Winter 2015. Money raised from the coffee morning will go to John Lewis Peterborough’s Charity of the Year, Parkinson’s UK.
The coffee morning will start from 10.30am and run through to midday. Tickets are priced at £5 and customers can purchase them in store by visiting the customer support department on the first floor from Monday August 31 onwards.
Paul Marsden, Head of Branch at John Lewis Peterborough said: “I am pleased that we can support our Charity of the Year in such an inventive way, it’s shaping up to be a really great event and we can’t wait.”
Parkinson’s is a progressive neurological condition. People with Parkinson’s don’t have enough of a chemical called dopamine because some nerve cells in their brain have died.
There is currently no cure for Parkinson’s and it is not yet known why people get the condition.
Jill Normington, Vice Chair of the Peterborough Branch of Parkinson’s UK said: “We are delighted that John Lewis Peterborough has chosen the group as their Charity of the Year. We hope the Personal Styling Coffee Morning will give customers not only the chance of seeing the latest in fashion but the opportunity to learn more about this long term neurological condition.”
