Putting our region's cancer needs first


Llanfairfechan, Aber & Bangor Committee have been putting their most fashionable foot forward this summer, starting with their own pop-up clothing shop.

Fashion show and pop up shop in llanfairfechan

On 13th June the Committee opened the doors to their pop-up charity shop in Llanfairfechan, with venue support from a local businessman. Up for sale was an array of donated goods including toys, books, fashion accessories and both new and pre-loved clothing. 

Supporters, the local community and even a stag do on the hunt for wacky outfits came out in their droves to support the Committee and come away with a few new items. The shop proved so popular that the Committee packed up the shop and reopened in Penmaenmawr,
welcoming a whole new crowd of shoppers, and bringing the shops run to a lengthy four months, raising over £8,000 for life-saving research.

While the pop-up shop was seeing success, the Committee also hosted an awareness day at the local Co-Op, letting shoppers know about the work happening at North West Cancer Research, along with a raffle and a ‘guess the date’ game to win a locally made Dolls House. The day raised over £200.

In July, the fabulous fashions continued as the Committee hosted their ever popular ‘Shine with Ali’ Fashion Show in Llanfairfechan. Hostess
and Charity supporter, Ali, presented an array of beautiful clothing, modelled by Committee members and friends, before guests were welcomed to peruse and purchase, raising over £700 on the night.

Eleri Rogers, Secretary of Llanfairfechan, Aber and Bangor Committee said: “Following the pandemic it hasn’t been easy to organise fundraising events, but thankfully as restrictions lifted opportunities increased and we’ve been able to put on a summer full of brilliant activities.

“We’re so pleased with the success of the pop-up shop, and so grateful to have received a great deal of beautiful clothes. Word spread quickly and the shop kept busy each week!

“We’re delighted to report that since the beginning of the year our events, along with donations to the Committee, have raised over £9,000 for vital cancer research projects!”
