Pre-loved fashion appeal for Lincoln charity pop-up ballroom boutique

Pre-loved garments needed.

High-quality, pre-loved dresses, shoes, handbags and accessories are needed for resale at Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance’s pop-up ballroom boutique during Lincoln Fashion Week.

Lincoln BIG’s official charity partner for Lincoln Fashion Week will set up their boutique in The Waterside Shopping Centre in Lincoln daily between May 4 to 11.

Money raised from the sales will go to the charity to help raise more funds to enable it to move to 24/7 flying later this year.

People can donate items at the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance shops in Lincoln High Street, Bracebridge Heath, Wragby, Market Rasen, Spalding or Ashby (near Scunthorpe).

Clothes donations can also be taken to collection points in Debenham’s at Lincoln’s St Marks Shopping Centre, the Waterside Shopping Centre and at The White Hart Hotel in the Bailgate area of the city.

Donations can be made at the collection boxers from April 16 and all donations must be received by April 25.

Lincoln BIG Head of Fashion Jess Wickham said: “We’re hoping people will be motivated to help the charity by taking a closer look inside their wardrobes and donating garments and accessories, which are unnecessarily taking up precious space but much too special to simply throw away.

“Donated garments, suitable for anything from a wedding to a day at the races or even a cruise are welcome. We would also love to receive jewellery, shoes, bags, hats and fascinators – we’re sure they will all help to make the pop-up shop a real magnet for bargain-hunters and in turn help the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance raise vital funds so that it can continue to save lives 365 days a year!”
