Past Present Futures fashion show raises £2,618 for Hillcrest Futures

Posted: November 15, 2022

A fashion show organised by the Past Present Futures boutique charity shop has raised £2,618 for Scottish support charity, Hillcrest Futures.

The ‘Putting on the Glitz’ event was held in Woodlands Hotel in Broughty Ferry on Sunday (13 November), with over 100 guests in attendance.

Attendees were treated to a pop-up shop consisting of the latest donated stock from Past Present Futures, as well as a variety of entertainment including a runway show of volunteer models, live music from Brooke Coventry and a prize raffle.

Past Present Futures’ shop manager Tricia Perrie, who was involved in organising the event, commented: “We’re delighted to raise these funds for such a worthy cause. The fashion show was a success thanks to all of our loyal supporters who attended and donated the most amazing pre-loved items.

“We’re grateful to our group of charity shop volunteers for all their efforts in helping to organise the event. I’d also like to give a special mention to Ally, who receives support from Hillcrest Futures, for ensuring the event was exclusive by checking all attendees’ tickets, to hairdresser John Duncan for making our models look fabulous, and to Woodlands Hotel for donating hot beverages and cakes.”

The raffle featured a range of prizes donated by local people and businesses including Downfield Golf Club, Prego Boutique, Meraki, Bee Waxed, Bella Mella, Tiger Lily Boutique, McNicoll and Cairnie, Paper Kisses, Our Little House, John Duncan Hairdresser and Past Present Futures’ regular supporters Sandy, Cathy, Mary and Debbie.

All money raised from the fashion show will go to Hillcrest Futures to support vulnerable people across Scotland to live full and vibrant lives. This includes people with physical and learning disabilities, autism, young people and older people. Further services include supporting positive mental health and wellbeing, homelessness and drug, alcohol and recovery services.
