We cannot do everything at once,
but we can do something at once


Jools and her team at GAZELLE of Sheringham and Cromer will be showing off their wonderful new 'Spring/Summer Collection' of ladies fashions to raise funds for Friends of DayBreak, a group which specifically raise money for BREAK charity's day care services for adults with learning disabilities.

The Fashion Show will take place on Tuesday 8th April at The Southland's Hotel, South Street, Sheringham at 7.00pm for 7.30pm. Models, which include staff and customers of the shops who have all freely given their time to this event, will be showing off the new and exciting range of clothes for real women of all ages, for every occasion. This will also be the first showing of the new collection before it even reaches the shops!

Bernard Watson, Manager of DayBreak said; "DayBreak provides an essential service to many people across North Norfolk. We very much cater to individual needs and exist to provide a range of activities, opportunities and experiences for adults with learning disabilities, from providing oppertunities that will help build confidence and develop individual responsibility to encouraging interaction and discussion, all in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. We try to provide as wide a range of activities as possible, including further education, working and learning about computers, arts and crafts, and visits to local attractions. Funds raised by the Friends of DayBreak will provide additional resources and equipment for the DayBreak groups, which is invaluable to us."

Their main centre in Sheringham takes up to 25 adults with learning disabilities, from just one day to five days a week, dependent on the individuals needs and requirements. They also have six other 'cluster groups', which operate within village and church halls or community centres on particular days during the week. These 'cluster groups' take up to ten people at any one time. If you would like to support DayBreak and get a glimpse of this lovely collection then please come along on 8th April - tickets are selling fast!

Tickets are 7.50 per person, which includes a glass of wine and nibbles. You can pick up your ticket by calling in at the GAZELLE shop, Sheringham (6 Church Street, Tel: 01263 825182) or Cromer (22 Church Street, Tel: 01263 510888).
