A MUM is organising a charity fashion show in support of her daughter who has serious heart problems.

Debs Banyard is organising the show at Lakeside in North Harbour tonight.

Local companies have offered their support as well as students from South Downs College.

Debs’ daughter Cora, eight, was born with half a heart and has had to have open heart surgery several times.

Debs, from Warsash Road in Locks Heath, said: ‘Cora is my inspiration. She decided that she wanted to help every charity that helped her.

‘It’s a huge amount of work to organise. I’m struggling but I am excited.’

Money raised from the event will be donated to The Rainbow Trust, which supported Cora and her family.

The show will take place at the Atrium in Lakeside from 6pm tonight.
