A ladies’ night showcasing local business talent has taken place at a Worthing shoe shop.

The event, at Brantano, Lyons Farm, was in aid of national charity Tommy’s.

Visitors received a 20 per cent discount on shoes and businesses, including a masseuse and a man from Dial a Hubby came along to offer their services and advice.

Amorette Darby, supervisor at Brantano, said: “It went really well.

“It was all about showcasing and bringing together local talent, so we had a girl who has just started up her own company as a masseuse and a business which do wedding hair giving tips, among others.”

The charity funds research into pregnancy problems and provides support and information to parents.

It also leads the way in maternal and foetal research, by looking into the causes of premature birth, stillbirth and miscarriage.

It is named after the hospital where it started, St Thomas’ in London.

Amorette added: “Brantano do quite a lot for Tommy’s and whenever we have an event, we like to raise money for them.

“We kept the collection buckets in store throughout the week.”

The shop is holding another event around Hallowe’en time, and will add up the total of donations then.
