To mark Flannels 35th anniversary, The Flannels Group is hosting Flannels Creates; a designer auction with The Christie NHS Foundation Trust on Thursday 29th November 2012 at the Flannels Spinningfields store & The Oast House in Manchester.

The campaign target is to raise £50,000 to help cancer patients at The Christie, a specialist cancer centre based in Manchester. The money will go towards helping enhance the cancer treatment and care already offered by The Christie to offer a wider range of complimentary therapies and support.

Natalie Pike, corporate development manager at The Christie Charity said; “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Flannels and be part of this glamourous event, which will help raise vital funds to give cancer patients the support they need to complement their standard treatment.”

The evening will showcase a unique collection of 40 mannequins created by designer brands including Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry, Gucci, Paul Smith, Matthew Williamson, By Malene Birger, 2nd Day and Raoul with 10 pieces to be exclusively auctioned on the evening.

Each mannequin has been uniquely designed to represent the ethos of the individual brands. They are complete one offs – created especially by each design house for this special event.

Neil Prosser, Flannels Managing Director said, “I have had a long association with The Christie and have seen the huge contribution and development they have made to cancer treatment and research. To celebrate 35 years of Flannels, we have worked with our brands to create a unique event and support this remarkable institution.”
