Heels and Wheels


Events Management students from Cardiff Metropolitan Uni held a Spring Fashion Show recently to raise funds for the charity Whizz-Kidz. Whizz-Kidz provides disabled children with the essential wheelchairs and other mobility equipment they need to lead fun and active childhoods.

The extremely well-run event included stalls from vintage clothing suppliers Rock’ola Reborn and Penny Lane (both can also be seen at the Cardiff Fashion Quarter in Womanby Street, which is worth a look). Rug Life t-shirts designs were also on sale and a host of other stalls.

The catwalk show included high street brands as well as vintage looks.

Sara Head was guest of honour, Table Tennis Bronze medallist at the 2012 Paralympics, who was provided with a wheelchair by Whizz-Kidz herself when she was younger. We even got a sneak peek and a hold of her impressive Olympic medal.

It was a great night run by a professional team in aid of a fantastic charity. Thanks to Amy Harvey and the team for the invite and their kind hospitality.
