Sarah Gibbs and Sue Butland organised a fashion show in aid of Motor Neurone Disease and Charlie's Fund, which is supporting Sidmouth woman Charlie Gwillim.

Mrs Gibbs chose the causes as they affected people she knew and has raised in excess of £3250.

She welcomed more than 80 people to her Newton Poppleford home on Wednesday (August 8).

The event was generously supported with rails upon rails of clothing laid out for guests to browse and buy on the day.
