About You Shall go to The Ball

What we do


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.

A little about me & why I set up Y.S.G.T.T.B


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!
