Almost £1,000 was raised to help battle cancer at a charity fashion show held in Oban last Friday night.

Dozens of people made their way to Oban’s M&Co to watch the models strut their stuff on the catwalk in aid of Cancer Research.

There was something for everyone with boys, girls and adult models showing off what the clothing store has to offer.

The money was raised through entry fees and raffle tickets.

Glynis Dewar said: ‘It has been a fantastic turnout. This is the first time we have done this so we are very grateful to M&Co. It all goes to research into a cure for cancer.’

Speaking after the event, she added: ‘We have raised £946 for Cancer Research. This town is fantastic. The money that has been raised is incredible.’

Mrs Dewar thanked the models, spectators, those who took part in the raffle and Linda Crosher for commentating on the night.
