A parade of spring fashions in memory of a mum who died after a 10-year battle with cancer raised �12,000 for charity.

Two hundred people flocked to two shows in north Norfolk celebrating the life of Vikki Sipek who died aged 44 in 2007, raising cash for a breast cancer fund bearing her name.

Co-organiser Clare Nicholson, from Nicholson's fashion shop at Holt, said the result surpassed their expectations. The figure was boosted by a �7,000 prize draw for a holiday and a generous donation.

The event at Voewood House at High Kelling was compered by comedienne Morwenna Banks - godmother to Vikki's daughter Romy.

The money will go to the Vikki Sipek Crocus Tribute Fund which supports the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity.
