Fashioning a better life for Malawi

Quest News

Nicole Lee returned from her 5 weeks’ volunteering with Quest last summer in Malawi, full
of motivation to keep on giving her time and energy to support the
orphans and vulnerable children of Malawi.  Nikki not only raised over
£3,100 last year, garnering an amazing amount of support from her work
colleagues at CCS Mobile through her efforts last year, but is now
putting on a charity Fashion Show to raise money for Joshua Orphan & Community Care and Save the Children.

The Fashion Show
is taking place on 25th September, from 4-9pm, at the Roker Hotel in
Sunderland and looks set to be an ace evening out, with Debenhams
providing clothes with an African twist, takes place on September,
music from local spinner DJ Oneluv, and a couple of dance crew.  Oh and
not to mention the free wine and raffle with seriously good prizes…er,
iPad anyone??  Tickets are £10 and available from Debenhams Beauty
Counter, The Roker Hotel and Lickety Split.

Nikki said: “When I went to Malawi it was a real eye opener. Coming
back really did change me. I work full time and go out socially but
this really changed my outlook on life.

“It made me evaluate what
I really needed and what I didn’t and made me a lot more conscious
about what I was doing and buying.  To make sure all of those who
contribute on the night are kept up-to-date with how their cash has been
spent, Nicole plans on returning to Malawi next year.

Local
businesses have also put forward raffle prizes and helped Nicole put on
the event.  “The support has been overwhelming,” she said.
