LUNCHING ladies have raised hundreds of pounds for three Hampshire charities – the Rainbow Centre in Fareham, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity and Tradissar RDA riding for disabled people in Stubbington.

They are the charities supported by the Mayor of Fareham, Cllr Susan Bayford, who was special guest at the Ladies Let’s Lunch event at The Concorde club in Eastleigh. The event, organised by Rhian Fashion House owner Sandy Jones, is expected to raise around £2,000.

Guests enjoyed a three-course meal and a fashion show.
