Summer Style Showcase

Monday 24th June 2019

Last Thursday (20th June), Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance (HIOWAA) teamed up with Italian fashion brand Solo Mia for a unique event where “real models” took to the catwalk and raised a fantastic £2,374 for HIOWAA.

Hosted in the beautiful setting of Penton Park, the models that took part all hold a personal connection to HIOWAA with members of staff, volunteers and even ex-patients taking part, making the evening that much more special.

One HIOWAA volunteer, Jean Coleman, who braved the catwalk told us:

“It was really nice to see everyone transformed. I loved having my hair and make-up done and the event reaffirmed why I am so passionate about volunteering for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance.”

Jean, who has been volunteering with the Charity for two years added: “I was so proud to be there for such a special night.”

We want to say a huge thank you to all who attended the event and particularly to Solo Mia and all at Penton Park for their hard work and organisation!
