A high profile charity fashion show in Brigg’s Angel Suite showcased collections from the town’s boutiques.

Brigg Town Business Partnership promoted the charity evening led by Petticoats, who displayed their latest range of lingerie for Spring/Summer 2014.

And for the first time children’s clothing with sound effects was available.

Gladrags and Bags, Adore Fashion Boutique and Bridge Street Interiors all took to the catwalk as part of the event to showcase their outfits, supported by Vivienne Westwood jewellery, with handbags, purses and a selection of silver costume jewellery.

All the models gave their time free of charge.

The event raised more than £400, which will be divided between Brigg Town Business Partnership and Brigg Food Bank.

The food bank, which opened in the town last year, is the Business Partnership’s nominated charity of the year.

Brigg Food Bank is run by local volunteers, and is part of the Trussell Trust national initiative.

Its express aim is to distribute emergency food to those in crisis, with access coming via several agencies, which make available vouchers, entitling clients to receive up to three days supplies.

Additionally, people may contact the Brigg Food Bank direct on 07719 431401 and if there is no answer, messages are replied to as quickly as possible.

Volunteers are still needed and anyone able to offer help, either as a volunteer or a donor, can find more information on the website brigg.foodbank.org.uk
