Crohns and Colitis UK Dinner Dance

Back in September, I was invited to a dinner dance arranged by Stephanie Donnelly, a woman who set up a support group for people who have or are about to have stoma surgery.  It was in aid of Crohns and Colitis UK and Breakaway and I was asked to be part of their fashion show at the Midland Hotel in Bradford.

It was a great event and they raised a lot of money for two great causes, it was an honour to be part of the day.  Sometimes, being an IBD blogger can be lonely, you sit alone writing for a huge audience but don’t actually get to spend time with others and so attending events like this is a great joy.

I have never done a catwalk (there doesnt seem to be much call for a size 16 woman covered in scars to model!!) before but it was tons of fun and fantastic to be part of a runway filled with inspiring women who have or have had an ostomy.  There was a Photo Booth and a swing band called the 309’s, all in all it was a fantastic night!

Thanks to Timm from The Picture Foundry  for being my wonderful date and for photographing me in these shots.
