The team here at Beacon are proud to announce that we will be sponsoring the 2019 Fashion Fiesta in Leeds on 28th November.

As a way of giving something back to the local community, Chris Morris and Rachel Hatfield of Shoo Social Media founded Fashion Fiesta, a charity fashion show and competition for independent and upcoming fashion designers from across the Yorkshire region. It’s a great excuse to get dressed up and have a fantastic evening meeting other businesses and supporting local designers, all whilst doing our bit for a truly amazing charity. What’s not to love!

With local and talented fashion designers, artists and models once again returning for a fifth year,  to battle it out in front of carefully selected judges, this year is set to be their biggest event yet! The panel of judges will be assessing their work, based on five criteria: craftsmanship, concept, craftsmanship, originality, sustainability and commercial awareness!

Other sponsors of the event will include Black Solicitors, H&N Magazine, Coded4Ltd and Capricorn photography with variety of people attending from different industries. 

All funds raised from this year’s event will go to Teenage Cancer Trust 

Teenage Cancer Trust is a cancer care and support charity in the UK that exists to improve the cancer experience of young people aged between 13 and 24. Founded in 1990, the charity’s key service is providing specialist teenage units in NHS hospitals. It also trains and funds staff who are teenage cancer specialists. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity meeting this critical need.

Teenage Cancer Trust relies wholly on public donations and receives no government or NHS funding at all. For that reason, donations are vital for the charity to continue their amazing work and support the 2,500 young people who’ll be told they have cancer next year, and every year after that.  

Over the next five years, Teenage Cancer Trust are aiming to raise £80 million to provide the best cancer support and care for young people, whenever and wherever they need it. Let’s help them get there!
