The Anna stores owner, who has shops in Bury St Edmunds and Woodbridge, presented her new autumn/winter collection on behalf of the Racing Welfare Chaplaincy Project. More than £2,500 was raised from the bash, which took place close to her birthplace at Exning.

The venue was donated by Mr and Mrs Hugo Nicolle and all proceeds went to the charity that provides support and assistance for the people of racing at times of need.

“I know how important the racing industry is to this area and I also know the tremendous job that this great charity does. Therefore it was a pleasure to offer my support,” said Mrs Park.

Amanda Lisa Turner, a member of the organising committee, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Anna. It was a fun event that did a marvellous job of representing our charity.”
