A Liverpool based designer menswear store hosts a charity night in aid of Jamie Carragher’s ‘23 Foundation’ with the help of local celebrities.
Designer Boutique Menswear onStopgate Lane, Aintree plans to donate a large sum of money to the charity with support from local stars such as Jamie Carragher, British light-heavyweight champion Tony Bellew, Jacqueline Ablett andRadioCity’s Lee Butler.
Martin Webster, from Designer Boutique, said: “We really want to help raise some money for a great cause and we appreciate all the support we have received from famous local faces. I think that the 23 Foundation is a fantastic charity as all the proceeds that are donated go directly to the children who need them.”
Guests such as ‘Phoenix Nights’ writer Neil Fitzmaurice, impressionist Darren Farley, Liverpool FC physio Chris Morgan and Rufus Hound lookalike Danny Howard, who was featured on Celebrity Juice, turned out to support the cause.
The event, sponsored by Giorgio Armani, MA.STRUM and Creative Recreation, aims to raise a large sum of money for Jamie Carragher’s 23 Foundation to help local children who may be disadvantaged, or who suffer from illness, to achieve their dreams.
Martin Webster said: “We are so thankful for all of the support on twitter which has been really helpful in making the night a success. We had re-tweets from people like Coleen Rooney, Guillem Balague, Tony Bellew, Neil Danns, variousLiverpooland Everton players along with local boxers amd MMA competitors.”
Designer Boutique is a men’s designer clothing store based in Aintree and stocks brands such as Giorgio Armani, True Religion, Just Cavalli, Lyle & Scott, Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and more, some of which decided to donate clothing to help raise money through the charity raffle.
Martin Webster said: “Hopefully this will be the first of many fundraisers that we will hold here at Designer Boutique, we see this as a great way to not only raise money for a good cause but to help raise the profile of the store so that we can do more things like this in future.”
