Bunbury’s Salvation Army Corps has decked out the clothes, cakes and catwalk ahead of the annual retro Fashion Parade and High Tea. 

This year’s event kicks off from 2pm on Saturday, October 7 at the Salvos’ Timperley Road premises. 

The day features a fashion show, homemade food and a White Elephant stall to indulge in. 

Bunbury Salvation Army Corps lieutenant Harriet Farquhar said it provides a fun, relaxed time for everyone. 

“It involves people getting together, having a lot of fun, telling a lot of bad jokes and giggling over some clothing,” she said. 

“We collect clothes through the year that are a little bit quirky and a little bit different, little bit old, that come in through the jumble sale and then we have some people that wouldn’t normally perhaps model to show the clothes off and we tell funny stories and have some fun.

“For the people involved it’s just a fun day...we put on a fabulous spread, we have a lot of fun and so it’s an easy way to have a good afternoon out.” 

The Salvos and the InTown Lunch Centre have partnered for this year’s event. 

Lt. Farquhar said the event raised much-needed funds for both organisations. 

She added the funds raised assisted the Salvos’ Christmas campaign.

The Salvos are also celebrating 125 years in Bunbury with an event later this year.
