WOOD Green Animal Shelters may be well known for its dogs and cats, but now the charity is spreading its wings to the cat walk.

On Saturday, June 30, the Godmanchester-based animal charity will hold its very own fashion show, showcasing a number of local companies as well as ethical and fair trade businesses.

Models, including willing volunteers from the shelter and the local community, will take to the cat walk to raise funds for Wood Green.

Jenny Crowther, event organiser, said: "We hope this will give all those fashion conscious folk the chance to see some amazing clothes whilst raising money for Wood Green Animal Shelters.

"The companies involved have some wonderful collections and there will be something for everyone."

Clothing companies involved in the show include Cuckoo, People Tree, The Earth Collection and Unify - all either have links locally, or are ethical or Fair Trade firms. Also taking part are some of the students from Cambridge Regional College, who will be showcasing their designs, and Cambridge Bodyworks Dance Studio will be performing.
