Former Strictly Come Dancing judge Arlene Phillips has lent her support to a fashion show to raise money for people living with dementia.

The Belsize Park choreographer teamed up with broadcaster Fiona Phillips as ambassadors for charity Alzheimer’s Society at the inaugural Alzheimer’s Disease Golf Society show at Avenue in Regent’s Park Road, Finchley, last Thursday.

The event, which showed off autumn and winter fashion collections from Temple Fortune shop Averyl, raised £14,000 for Alzheimer’s Society (AS) and health and social care charity Jewish Care.

Arlene Phillips, whose father died of Alzheimer’s, said: “The amazing work that these two brilliant charities are doing is life-changing for so many people.”

The charity’s co-founder Morella Kayman signed copies of her autobiography at the show, which was her last as chair of the Alzheimer’s Disease Golf Society.
