TV presenter and stylist Lisa Fitzpatrick hosted a fashion show with a difference in aid of the Ross Nugent Foundation at The Wright Venue in Swords recently.

The charity was set up in the name of 18 year old Ross who lost his courageous battle against cancer in 2010. Ross's parents, Don and Sandra Nugent and sister Emma set up the foundation in order to raise funds to purchase equipment for the Oncology ward in Beaumont Hospital.

Models from AR Model Agency along with a number of Ross' friends took to the catwalk to raise funds for the cause, which to date has funded 40 pieces of equipment from blood pressure monitors to electric beds and chair beds.

"We would like to thank everyone who is helping us with the foundation by the giving of their time and services for free in order that we can raise as much money as possible. If we can make life more comfortable for patients, relations and nursing staff in oncology facilities nationwide then we are achieving our goal in Ross's name" said Don Nugent.
