Hundreds of wedding dresses for less than £200 will be on sale at a bridal event held by the LOROS hospice’s charity shop tonight (12th October).

The LOROS By Design shop, in Leicester’s Market Street, will be hosting the new and second-hand bridal sale, with some of the dresses originally having sold for up to £2,000.

Shop manager Abi Jarrom said: “For one night only, we will be transforming our entire By Design shop into a beautiful wedding showroom, with a huge range of beautiful gowns available for brides-to-be.

“We’ve been donated a number of new gowns in a variety of sizes and styles, which have been kindly donated to us by local organisations, while some of the dresses are pre-loved and have been given to us by former brides.

“Ranging from strapless gowns to beaded vintage beauties, there really is a style to suit every bride for every type of wedding. We don’t want the fact that we’re a charity to put people off because we still all appreciate just how much of a special occasion it is for brides and their loved ones when they find that perfect gown.

“And with some of the dresses originally priced at nearly 10 times the amount we’re selling them for, they would be an opportunity missed if they didn’t pop in, even just for a browse.”

The event falls in this year’s annual Hospice Care Week, a national campaign showcasing the work of Hospices, such as LOROS, around the country.
