Our Models

The inaugural Fashion, Food & Fizz event will take place on Friday 17th June at The Park Royal Hotel. Guests will be greeted with an Oscar-winning red-carpet entrance and a welcome fizz drink followed by a 2-course meal. 

Meet Kellie, our first Model

Kellie Millard, Mum of three from Winwick told us she had to get involved when she saw our advert for models. With no previous experience of modelling Kellie has decided to take part in memory of her friend Debs and her Mum.

Debbie, Mum of two, was diagnosed with bowel cancer in May 2020 and after numerous complications, she passed away a week before Christmas last year. Debbie received invaluable care from Clatterbridge Cancer Hospital and St Rocco’s throughout her diagnosis. Debbie and her husband Russ were committed to raising funds for Bowel Cancer charities and as a family have raised thousands of pounds to help continue the good work. Kellie is determined to fundraise in both Debbie and her Mums honour and is always up for a new challenge.

Meet Lisa, our second model

Like many of us, Lisa has had friends and family affected by cancer and so jumped at the opportunity to support. She told us about a close friend and cousin who have battled through treatment and can now say they are survivors but sadly lost her Dad along the way. Its because of these people and everyone else who requires our care that Lisa will be fundraising to ensure we can continue caring for our patients and their families when they need us most.

Lisa is part of the team at Onyx Salon in Lymm where she will be fundraising to help raise her sponsorship for this challenge. Lisa is feeling excited about the experience and is looking forward to modelling Sorelle Style clothing with the other ladies on the night.

Meet our third model, Silvia

We want to introduce you to an amazing young lady, Silvia Amarier, a 25 year old Data Analyst. She has lived in Warrington for five years. When she saw our advert looking for Models for our Fashion, Food & Fizz Event, she got in touch straight away. Silvia wants to help raise funds to support people living with a life limiting illness here in Warrington.

She has always enjoyed volunteering since high school. She wants to challenge herself; she describes herself as shy and wants to overcome this by showcasing Sorelle Style fashion for St. Rocco's. She sees this as an opportunity to meet new people and make new friends.

Meet our fourth model, Katharine

Katharine, who has supported the hospice over the years decided to join the modelling team after seeing our appeal for models in Sorelle Style where she is a regular shopper. Katharine works as a health care scientist in transplantation and feels that end of life care is a very important and underfunded aspect of healthcare and would like to support her local hospice.

With no previous modelling experience, it is something Katharine has always wanted to do. As Katharine was approaching her 50th birthday last year she decided to make some lifestyle changes. She completed the Couch25K, did an image course and has since lost over 5 stone. She told us that she feels like a new woman and that modelling for St Rocco’s feels like a reward to herself for all the hard work she has put in the last few years and an incentive to keep going and not get complacent as well as supporting such a great cause.

Meet our fifth model, Andrea

Andrea recently joined the St Rocco’s family as a volunteer in the Lymm Shop. Andrea wants to support her local hospice in any way that she can and so signed up to model in the Fashion, Food & Fizz event.

She is looking forward to the experience and modelling Sorelle Style clothing on the night. We think that Andrea is a true inspiration for taking this challenge on just a month into starting her volunteering with us.

Meet our sixth model, Emma

Emma Robinson, the joint owner with her sister of Robinson Irish Dance Academy, told us she had to get involved when she heard about our fashion show in aid of the Hospice. She is a breast cancer survivor and has also had a double mastectomy and reconstruction. Due to her experience, Emma understands how vital the care she received is.

By modelling for St. Rocco's, Emma wants to help others by letting them know they will feel confident again. She said, "Even if I can help one person". Emma is determined to beat her £500 fundraising target for the Hospice. Please come and support Emma at the Fashion Food and Fizz on the 17th of June at the Park Royal.

Meet our seventh model, Kathryn

Kathryn Harvey jumped at the chance to get involved in St Rocco's Fashion, Food and Fizz. Signing up to model and fundraise to support patient care at the hospice. She understands the importance of hospice care due to relatives that have received it and the impact this care has on patients and their families. She said, "You don't realise how the care is life-changing until you know someone close to you."

Kathryn has two jobs working part-time for a high street fashion company and as an accountant for the rest of the week. Her passion for clothes and background in finance makes a perfect combination for modelling at our fashion show.
