Worth Valley ward councillor’s dress-wearing exploits go down a storm at Haworth show
8:00am Thursday 10th April 2014 in News
A Worth Valley ward councillor’s dress-wearing exploits went down a storm at a Haworth business’s annual fashion show.
Glen Miller offered to wear a ladies’ outfit to raise money for Manorlands at the event, which was organised by Firths Boutique in Main Street.
His hand-made costume was designed and put together by Oxenhope resident Victoria Smith, who made the striking looking dress out of Timothy Taylor beer towels provided by the Fleece Inn.
Coun Miller thanked everyone who sponsored him in the daring stunt, raising £1,900. Fashion show organiser Nikki Carroll, who owns Firths Boutique, said the whole occasion had so far raised £2,748, including Coun Miller’s major contribution.
“It was an absolutely fantastic night,” she said. “The venue was packed out, there was an amazing atmosphere and we had an overwhelming response from everyone. Thanks to all those who supported us.
“Glen was such a big sport for volunteering to do this.”
Monday evening’s fashion show was staged in Haworth Community Centre and also included a raffle.
