On 19 October 2012 Charnos Hosiery National Stockings Day in support of Breast Cancer Care takes place, with activity in London, Manchester and Glasgow.
This year the theme is you ‘Can Can’ wear stockings, highlighting the feel good factor of donning feminine hosiery to help you feel better.
The excitement starts with a photo call at House of Fraser Oxford Street at 8am, which will host three performances throughout the day of amazing Can Can dancers, who will entertain visitors to the store with a flurry of colour, frou frou petticoats and of course beautiful hosiery. With whoops and cartwheels they will draw the crowds whilst stocking clad lovelies move about the store with collection tins raising money for Breast Cancer Care.
Breast Cancer Care’s Director of Fundraising and Marketing, Judy Beard said, “1 in 8 women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime and many women feel that they lose their femininity during treatment. Charnos National Stockings Day is a great excuse to get together with your friends, have fun and treat yourself by wearing beautiful stockings, while helping to raising awareness about breast cancer. Breast Cancer Care wants to be there for anyone affected by breast cancer and we couldn’t do this without the support from companies such as Charnos and their customers, so thank you.”
Another performance will be taking place simultaneously in the House of Fraser Glasgow store, whilst in Manchester a team of hosiery clad lovelies will be visiting landmarks in the city with their collection tins.
Charnos Hosiery will also be revealing the results of its latest survey on the attitude of women to wearing stockings and beautiful hosiery.
Isabel Keith, Buyer for Hosiery & Lingerie at House of Fraser: “It is a fantastic opportunity for us to add our support to such a great cause and give our customers an enjoyable experience whilst raising money for Breast Cancer Care. We are very excited to host a great performance at our Oxford Street and Glasgow stores!
