‘The Golden Runway,’ with no pun intended, was literally golden!
Nour held a fundraising event on Sunday the 23rd October 2011 at Tarling Community Centre; the golden fashion show was packed and truly golden.

After their two-year-old daughter had watched Sanchez Williams beating Casey Brittle into unconsciousness in their living room, she was left alone with her dying mother for two hours.
It was not the first time the little girl had seen her father attack her 21-year-old mother.

I do not know where the anger came from, suddenly I went crazy. I went to get knife to kill myself and my unborn child. The police came and my father got scared, he told my in laws to leave.
