9:40am Sunday 8th April 2012 in News
CAPRICE might have been in town for Manchester Fashion Week but the catwalk has already been stolen by breast cancer survivor Peter Fleming.
The 78-year-old took to the runway to help relaunch Jigsaw’s menswear range at a charity event at The Triangle.
The event, which took place on March 29 also featured blackjack and a DJ set with all proceeds going to Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention.
Peter, from Sale, discovered he had breast cancer while training for 2005’s London Marathon. He said: “I feel very fortunate to have overcome the illness and am delighted to raise funds that will go towards building a future without breast cancer.”
Manchester-based Genesis are the only charity in the UK dedicated entirely to the prevention of breast cancer. Founder, Pam Glass commented: “We’re extremely grateful for the great lengths that fundraisers, like Peter and the team at Jigsaw, are going to for Genesis.”
