The Tree of Hope Children's Charity have joined forces with the campaigning Models of Diversity for a unique Fashion Show to help raise funds for children’s specialist medical treatment and therapy in the UK. The event will be held at Leslie Ash and Lee Chapman’s award winning champagne lounge JuJu in Chelsea.
An award winning actress and author, Sally Farmiloe works regularly as a compere and auctioneer. "I am so looking forward to this evening as the compere in aid of the Tree of Hope Children's Charity. It should be such a fun event the day before the royal wedding."
With the guidance and approval of medical practitioners in our health care services, The Tree of Hope Children's Charity will fund grants for medical treatment and therapy within the private sector of medicine in the UK. We will also fund surgery and treatment by medical specialists abroad, where the specific knowledge and facilities are available, in order to treat UK children as quickly as possible.

Fashion Industry Experience
Models of Diversity is a London-based non-profit organization, whose mission is to change the face of fashion and modelling. They have had great visibility in the press with their impressive campaigning, celebrity endorsements and most recently, their models have been used in popular television programmes on Channel 4 in 2011.
They quote: "We advocate for more diversity in models and demands that the fashion and marketing industries recognise the beauty in women of all races, ages, shapes, sizes and abilities. MoD uses top agency standard models, because not just anyone can be a model; a successful model must still have a special beauty and be able to sell a product. However, we reject the notion that only a very narrow range of ages, races, shapes and abilities are marketable." www.modelsofdiversity.org

Wow, Tree of hope sounds so amazing-I especially love charities that help children when they are sick.Kids don't understand what sickness means they just feel the pain. It would be so awesome to be the face of a campaign that helps kids. Thanks for adding me as a friend-Fashion Editor Su-
