There was plenty of fashion on show at the Scissor Sisterz evening of fashion recently.

Organised by sisters Keara and Tanya Doran and Mary Banks the fashion show was to raise money for Wexford Hospice Homecare. Keara said that her and Tanya's mother Catherine as well as Mary's husband Tim O'Connor had both been able to die at home thanks to the support of Wexford Hospice Homecare.

Mary who is a customer of Keara's salon Scissor Sisterz was in the salon on day and they were both discussing how they would like to give something back to the wonderful charity and the night of fashion was the result of their ideas.

Mary who previously worked in RTE got Marietta Doran, Tracy Piggott and Marty Morrissey on board and all local shops and businesses were asked to support the cause.

Keara said the support was fantastic with 'over €3,500 worth of prizes and auction items on the night, all of which were donated.' The show was a huge success with over €15,000 raised.
