BRAVE breast cancer survivors took the catwalk for the seventh annual fashion show organised by their nurses.

The dazzling models - including one man - are undergoing, or have undergone, treatment for the disease strutted their stuff on the catwalk to an audience of around 300.

The event is organised by their breast care nurses for them and their families as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Organisers breast care nurses Veronica Allinson and Bernadette Gledhill, from the Morton Gledhill agency, teamed up for the seventh year running for the event.

Veronica said: “We can’t thank our models and our supporters enough for the continuing success of this event. No matter how late or what we asked for local shops always help us out. Without our patients and local support there would be no show.”

Local shops provided the fashions including Nicholls, at Skircoat Green, the House of Elliott, Birchencliffe, Harold Crabtree in Halifax and Hebden Bridge, Alan Lund and Marks and Spencer in Halifax. Flair from Elland and Headliners from Stump Cross also took part.
