Beauties: The models relaunch the shop in Barking

Three top models have joined forces to unveil a revamped shop that raises funds for terminally-ill children.

The beauties dazzled with their looks as they relaunched the Richard House children’s hospice shop with pampered two-year-old Ishmael Belmony and his nurse in Longbridge Road, Barking.

Haley Mac, aka Miss Commonwealth International, said: “In times like these, charity shops are a great place to pick up a bargain.

“And knowing you’re helping such an amazing place as Richard House makes your purchase even more special.”

Haley was joined by Sasha Wright, Miss Teen Essex, and Sydney Fennings, Miss Essex Galaxy, for the ribbon cutting ceremony on March 30.

The Richard House store sells books, electronics and furniture to fund care for children with complex and life threatening conditions.

The Newham hospice where they are treated needs more than £3million of donations each year to treat children.

The shop underwent an expensive makeover with new frosted glass designs.

Richard House head of retail, Mark O’Brien, said: “It has done all of us proud in the past and, hopefully, this makeover will do all of us proud again in the future.”

* The store is open from 10am to 4.30pm Monday to Saturday. For more information on the hospice, call 020 7540 0200/0220.
