LOCAL family support charity, Home-Start Aberdeen, is seeking a sponsor to help support a combined fashion show and afternoon tea to be held in the city this Autumn. Organised by Friends of Home-Start Aberdeen, the event will be held at the Chester Hotel on Sunday 19th November, and celebrate ten years of the organisation’s George Street charity shop.
“Our annual afternoon tea fundraiser has proved very popular in recent years and with a fashion show included this year, we’re really looking forward to welcoming a good crowd again,” explains Home-Start Aberdeen’s Chief Executive, Eleanor McEwan. “To celebrate the tenth anniversary of our shop, donated clothes from the shop will be modelled by some of the families we support, with entertainment provided by the acclaimed Scottish retro trio, The Vintage Girls, and a delicious spread of tasty treats courtesy of the Chester – it’s going to be a fabulous afternoon!”

Home-Start Aberdeen provides life-changing support to families across the city through its local community network of trained volunteers and experienced staff. Starting in the home, the charity’s approach is as individual as the people it helps, offering compassionate, confidential support, and helping parents to gain the knowledge, skills and resources they need to give their children the best possible start in life.
“Demand for our services increases every year and we now support around 200 families in Aberdeen every year,” continues Eleanor. “On average it costs Home-Start Aberdeen £1,500 to support a family through the challenges they face until they can cope again. We’re looking for corporate sponsors to help ensure that every penny we raise from ticket sales goes towards helping vulnerable families in Aberdeen. We’re looking for £500 from sponsors, and in return they will feature in our event programme, and be thanked in all our social media and PR activity. They will also be given the opportunity to promote their business at the event, and two free tickers at our VIP table.”
Tickets for the event are available at Home-Start Aberdeen’s Afternoon Tea with Fashion Show Tickets, Sun 19 Nov 2023 at 14:00 | Eventbrite. To find out more about sponsoring the event please contact [email protected]
