Fashion shows return to raise funds for Daisy Appeal


A family business which has been a leader in the region’s fashion scene for more than 50 years has announced a fundraiser for the Daisy Appeal after resuming its ever-popular charity fashion shows.

Wat’s On Fashion, which was launched by Joyce Clappison in 1969, will present two fashion shows in one day at their boutique in Willerby Road, Hull.

The events will take place on Wednesday 6 April with arrival at 10am for the 10.30am show and 2pm for the 2.30pm show. Tickets are £15 each and guests will have the chance to win an outfit to the value of £150 while enjoying a glass of fizz and some nibbles.

The Daisy Appeal is closing in on its target of £8.5m for the construction and fit-out of a UK-first Molecular Imaging Research Centre (MIRC) at Castle Hill Hospital. The centre is due to open in the autumn and will improve the detection and treatment of cancer, heart disease and dementia for people across the Humber region.

Joyce said:

We’ve raised a lot of money for various charities from our fashion shows over the years but like everything else we had to stop when the pandemic came. We started again in November and we plan to continue.

“We’re delighted to support the Daisy Appeal again and we hope very much that people will come along and join us.

Claire Levy, Fundraiser for the Daisy Appeal, said:

We’re so grateful to Joyce and her team for helping us once again. We haven’t been able to hold an event at Wat’s On since 2019 but they are always great fun and very popular and we’ve got our fingers crossed for another sell-out!

Tickets are available direct from the online store, or Wat’s On at 196 Willerby Road, tel 01482 506953, or by contacting Claire at claire@daisyappeal.org
