THE Bell at Skenfrith will host a charity private view of London designer Katherine Hooker's spring/summer collection, complemented by hats from Wales's award-winning milliner Alison Tod.

The Private View and Champagne Reception on Thursday, July 3 is in aid of The Haven and its Outreach to Wales initiative which aims to open an extension to the Hereford Haven in South Wales. Founded by Herefordian Sara Davenport more than 20 years ago, The Haven is a breast cancer support centre that offers a free, personalised programme of emotional and physical support to anyone affected by breast cancer.

Katherine Hooker's customers include the Duchess of Cambridge, Meryl Streep and Taylor Swift. Tickets are available from The Bell at Skenfrith on 01600 750235. The private view continues on Friday when there will be free admission to view and try the collection, with a special two-course shopper's lunch available.
