We accept pre-loved Prom, Bridesmaid & Occasion Gowns; working with charities to ensure deserving girls can attend Prom
On the 21st October 2017, We decided to set up 'You Shall go to The Ball' with the mission of collecting pre-loved Prom, Bridesmaid and Occasion Gowns; ensuring they go to brave and deserving girls to make them Cinderella for one night!
We work with local charities across Lancashire to identify girls that truly deserve to attend their Prom but may not be able too due to circumstances out of their control.
Many of the girls are terminally ill or young carers who look after their sick and disabled parents or siblings; which causes significant financial difficulties for their families.
Despite their circumstances these girls still attend School every day and are always so positive. Having seen the courage, bravery and determination these girls show every day, I truly believe they deserve to attend their Prom and be a normal teenager for one night!
Our goal at You Shall go to The Ball is to help as many girls across Lancashire as we can and to do this we need your continued love and support.
My names Louise and I am a Nurse who lives and works in Lancashire. I work with 100's of teenagers across the Northwest who live lives that none of us could imagine; yet still manage to have a smile on their faces and push themselves to achieve all that they can.
Unfortunately due to circumstances out of their control, many of these kids live with very little money and receive support from their School's to buy the basic's such as uniforms and shoes.
I recently got married in August 2017 and discovered the significant cost of purchasing Bridesmaid dresses. Afterwards I realised that my beautiful Bridesmaids would never wear their dresses again.
Then I looked in my wardrobe
and realised I had a number of dresses I had worn once and were just colllecting dust. Then I thought surely I am not the only one who buys a beautiful dress for an occasion and then never wear it again? And surely these dresses could help out another in need?
So I did a little research and found that the average UK Prom dress costs around £300 and once you have added on hair, makeup and transport this can rise to anywhere between £500 - £1000! This is so unrealistic for many families across the Northwest and this is where you can help my donating your pre-loved dress to brave and extraordinary girls across Lancashire.
We accept dresses in any size, colour or style as all of our girls are unique!
Dresses must be clean and in good condition with no rips or damage evident.
We will also accept shoes and clutch bags as long as they are in excellent condition and would look amazing at a Prom!
