Walker organises event at Morecambe Golf Club

A fun fashion show in aid of CancerCare North Lancashire and South Cumbria was organised by a charity trekker.


Georgie Whittle, a Therapy Coordinator and hypnotherapist at CancerCare in Lancaster, organised the fashion show at Morecambe Golf Club as she is preparing to undertake a gruelling 80km trek across Cambodia.

The fashion show on February 28 was attended by more than 100 people and was a huge success.

Georgie, 60, who grew up in Morecambe and now lives in Halton, is hoping to raise at least £3,000 for CancerCare by doing the Cambodia walk in November 2018.

She said: “I’d like to thank Morecambe Golf Club Shop2Drop and everyone who came along to the fashion show for making it such a great night.

“I’ve been training in the gym and I’m going out with a fellwalking group in preparation for the trek.

“It will be 16km to 20km a day with some jungle terrain and a main ascent.”
