• Jools Topp to host Charity Fashion Show
West Aucklanders get behind event for Hospice West Auckland

Promising an evening of fashion, silent auctions and entertainment with a ‘Refined Westie’ flavour, Hospice West Auckland will present an Absolutely Fabulous Fashion Show next month. The event will showcase fashion sourced from West Auckland’s Hospice Shops, all of which will be available for sale on the night at Op Shop prices.

Jools Topp, one half of well-loved New Zealand comic duo the Topp Twins, is a West Auckland resident and self-confessed Hospice Shop fan. Jools said, “We love Hospice Shops - you're helping a great organisation that does invaluable work and you can get some great stuff. We have bought all of our costumes in Hospice Shops!”

CEO of Hospice West Auckland, Barbara Williams said, “We are absolutely delighted that Jools Topp will be our celebrity MC for the evening. We know the audience is in for a very special night for a great cause, with lots of laughs. We also wanted to demonstrate the fabulous range of clothing that donors so generously give us, and to show the quality of garments available from our Hospice Shops in West Auckland.”

A range of Silent Auction items will also be available for guests to bid on during the evening. Auction items include a ‘Lunch with Bob’ (personally cooked by West Auckland icon Sir Bob Harvey and award-winning daughter chef Celia Harvey at his Karekare beach house) through to a new BBQ, gourmet foods, wine, beauty products and more. All proceeds from the evening will go to Hospice West Auckland’s newly opened Specialist Palliative Care beds, caring for West Aucklanders with terminal or life-limiting illnesses.

The Absolutely Fabulous Fashion Show will be held at Langtons on Lincoln, 7.30pm Thursday 21 August. Tickets are limited and available now from www.iticket.co.nz or ph (09) 361 1000

There have been striking differences between (a) the account of the waitress involved in the hair-pulling incidents, and (b) the account being given by Prime Minister John Key. The version by the waitress is available here and is recommended to anyone yet to read it. By her account, there were multiple instances of hair-pulling and these persisted and persisted long after she had made her annoyance clear to Key – who had also been advised by his wife, and by other café staff that the behavior was evidently not being welcomed.
