Aurora Fashion Show

Wednesday 16th November, 7.00pm
North Notts Arena in Worksop

Aurora friends and volunteers will take to the catwalk for a stylish evening of clothes, craft stalls and socialising. Guests can browse the stalls and get inspiration for a unique Christmas gift. Fashion show coordinators, Complete Clothing, will provide High Street and Boutique clothing at discounted prices.

The money raised on the evening will help the Aurora charity continue to provide a package of free beauty and holistic therapy treatments for men and women to help boost self-esteem and confidence whilst undergoing and recovering from cancer related treatments.

Tickets are £10.00 per person and are on sale from at the Aurora Centre in Worksop. Groups bookings are available, so get together with friends and enjoy the entertainment and take advantage of the licensed bar on offer.
Here to help

People living with a long-term health condition can often feel isolated and find it difficult to meet others or share their experiences.

Aurora’s monthly drop-in support group is set up to help people with a long-term health condition share information, help and knowledge amongst like-minded people.

This sociable and fun support group is free and meets at Aurora on the first Monday of every month. Everyone is welcome.
