One of our fantastic supporters is putting on a fabulous fundraiser for Safe Haven in September.

The aim of this fantastic event is to acknowledge and celebrate creativity and talent through our designs, display them at a fashion show and sell them to raise £10,000 for Safe Haven Children’s Trust.

The event will take place on September 13th from 7pm – 10pm, at St John’s Church, Lansdowne Crescent, Notting Hill, London, W11 2NN.

To purchase tickets or donate to our event please visit our page at www.justgiving.com/designandmake and email gareth@safehavencambodia.org with your name and how many tickets you would like.

In his own words:

My name is Gareth Williams (28 years old) and I live in Notting Hill, London. My background is in fashion design, studying for my degree at the University for the Creative Arts in Epsom, graduating in 2007. I would like this project to be an opportunity for everyone involved to acknowledge their talent and creativity.

This project will give everyone the opportunity to design, make or donate something that will make a difference to vulnerable children living in Cambodia. The event will be a fashion show and gallery showing and selling our designs/items during London Fashion Week on 13th September 2014 from 7pm at St. John’s Church, Lansdowne Crescent, Notting Hill, London W11 2NN, to celebrate our creativity and raise money for Safe Haven Children’s Trust in Cambodia.

I have assembled an amazing collection of emerging designers from across the world including Victor Pao (MA London College of Fashion), Katie Darlington (Kingston University, UK), Melanie Orzechowska (Northumbria University, UK) and established designers including Gilles Blachard (Design Director at Elie Tahari, Former Design Director at Calvin Klein, New York, USA) and Abigail Eaton (Head Designer at Ashley Isham) all of whom will be contributing their work.

The event will take place on September 13th from 7pm – 10pm, at St John’s Church, Lansdowne Crescent, Notting Hill, London, W11 2NN
