The Left Bank Brasserie in Ormskirk on Sunday night, March 11th 2012, was the venue for a vibrantly colourful hair and fashion show charity fundraiser event, in support of the UK-Sands (Stillbirth & Neonatal Death) Charity.

The fashion show presented, to the assembled audience, a range of hair styles and fashion clothing to suit women of all ages, for a variety of occasions.  The sale of tickets for the charity event and a prize raffle means that a cheque for a significant amount will soon be on its way to help the work of the UK-Sands Charity.

The fundraising event was organised by Alexis Boulger of the Studio 44 Hair Salon and came together with the support of Rumours (Ladies Fashion) and the Left Bank Brasserie.

The UK-Sands Charity was founded in 1978 by a small group of bereaved parents devastated by the death of their babies.

The bereaved parents' heartache was exacerbated by a feeling that there was a lack of acknowledgement and understanding by the health authorities and perhaps also the wider community, as to the significant loss felt by these parents and their families.

Since then, the UK-Sands Charity has grown and now supports thousands of families who have been affected by the loss of a baby. The charity members provide emotional support, comfort and practical help.
