STYLISH sisters are fund-raising to help a charity close to their heart.

Khristine Bravo, 27, and Khristine Javilagon, 19, both of Millfield, held a fashion show at Revolution, Low Row, Sunderland, to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

The pair, and friend Maria Payumo, 19, of Pallion, organised the event in honour of the sisters’ grandmother, Ines Navarro, who is recovering from cancer. The 80-year-old, who lives in the Philippines, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last year but is now in remission.

Khristine Bravo, a primary education student at Sunderland University, said: “We had to send money to the Philippines for her treatment. It made things a lot more difficult, but thankfully, she is fine now.”

The event, which was attended by more than 150 people, raised about £900.
