Designer wedding dress savings worth thousands of pounds offered in support of children’s hospice charity
Children’s charity, Shooting Star Children’s Hospices, is hosting a one-time wedding fair in its Cobham shop on the 21st to 27th of March, 2022, where thousands of pounds in discounts will be available on dozens of boutique wedding and bridesmaid dresses, shoes, tiaras, and other wedding items - many of which have never been worn or are sample items.
Dresses and other items come from high-end designers such as Vera Wang, Charlotte Mills, Sottero and Midgley, Sadoni, Tara Keely, Arianna, and Poirier, and were generously donated to the charity by bridal boutiques.
The stock will be sold, for some items, at a fifth of the price. It is hoped that the fair will net the children’s hospice charity thousands of pounds, which will go towards providing vital care, medical and therapeutic, and other essential services in the charity’s work caring for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
Dozens of dresses and items will be available in the shop over the week, and brides-to-be and other interested parties are strongly encouraged to contact the shop directly to make appointments in advance of the fair, who are already accepting appointments. A dresser and shop assistants will be available, and the charity has teamed up with local fitting and alteration businesses to be able to offer a comprehensive service.
Shooting Star Children’s Hospices Cobham shop manager, Helen Pilmer said, “We're delighted to be offering this opportunity for brides from near and afar to save hundreds, if not thousands of pounds, on stunning designer dresses and other items. We hope that they will leap at this opportunity, and in so doing help a truly wonderful charity, absolutely dedicated to caring for children with life-limiting conditions. Knowing that your special day has provided some degree of comfort to a family navigating an unimaginable situation is truly priceless gift to give back.”
