Beth finds herself in need of a new wedding dress

The man behind Preston City Wrestling has launched a JustGiving page to replace a wedding dress.


The future of Beth’s wedding dress is unknown following the sudden closure of Dan Kerr Brides as the company entered administration.

Steven Fludder, owner of Preston City Wrestling, said: “Having raced down to the Dan Kerr’s she has found the shop to be gutted and her dress has gone too.

“Beth was in tears as a retail worker who is not the best paid and has worked very hard to manage to pay £500 of the £1000 outstanding balance with Dan Kerr. Beth now has no dress and little funds to replace the money lost.

“Beth is a very good person and I am doing my bit to help.

“If you can be kind enough to donate then great but if not simply share this Just Giving Page and help us reach our target.”

Dan Kerr said in a statement that they would write to existing customers to address agreements that they have in place.

Witnesses reported seeing stock being removed from the store in Lancaster Road earlier today (April 18).
