Award-winning stylist hosts Mind fund-raiser

15th March 2017

A top stylist is hosting an evening of style and colour to raise much needed funds for Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind.

Expert in colour analysis, Elaine Gill, is hosting the event at the Talbot Hotel in Malton on Monday 27th March to raise money for Scarborough Whitby and Ryedale Mind (SWR Mind).

Winner of the House of Colour Star Consultant award for the past three years, Elaine has run her successful consultancy in Harrogate since 1999 where she works with both male and female private and corporate clients.

During the evening she will be helping people to make the most out of their own style to enhance their look and advise on how to create a capsule wardrobe. 

There will also be a demonstration on colour matching, advice on choosing make-up colours followed by a question and answer session. 

Christine Gilkes, Chairwoman of SWR Mind received a birthday gift of a day with Elaine and said: “This was the perfect birthday present.

"It was great fun, with lots of giggles as well as being really enlightening. It changed not only the way I look, but has made shopping a much more focussed and pleasurable experience.

"Elaine came to me highly recommended and she was warm, friendly and hugely knowledgeable. 10 years on and I’m still following her advice to the letter. There is so much more to looking good, feeling confident and getting a style that reflects your personality!”

CEO for SWR Mind Sophie Hall said: “I think this will be a great night. Having your own style that reflects your personality can be a real confidence booster and an integral part of self-esteem. 

"Thanks to the Talbot, the night is being held in a beautiful location. Every year our organisation is approached by hundreds of people seeking support. With secure funding becoming difficult to find, events like these are so vital to keeping our organisation going and we hope people will come along, enjoy a great night and help support people in their local community.”

The Evening of Style and Colour event is on from 7pm to 9pm at the Talbot Hotel in Yorkersgate, Malton. Tickets are priced £15 which includes refreshments. All proceeds will go to SWR Mind. Numbers are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets can be purchased from reception at the Talbot Hotel or from the SWR Mind office at Falsgrave Community Centre in Scarborough, over the telephone on 01723 356562 or email
