A special prom shopping weekend will take place next month to help school leavers find their perfect dress – all whilst raising funds for a much-loved local charity.


St Catherine’s Hospice is hosting the two-day event on Saturday March 7 and Sunday March 8 following the popularity of its pop-up prom shop last year.

More than 300 beautiful dresses will be available from only £40 in the hospice’s Garden Room in St Catherine’s Park, Lostock Hall, throughout the special shopping weekend.

Head of retail Carole Hoyle said: “We’re always astounded by the generosity of our supporters who donate fantastic quality items to our charity shops.

“We have an amazing collection of gorgeous prom dresses and we’re excited to bring them all together to help teenagers find their dream dress without stretching the purse-strings.


“We hosted a similar event last year and it was a resounding success, with young ladies and their parents travelling from all over the North West to get a great deal, find a beautiful dress, and raise funds for the charity’s specialist care and support.

“There will also be shoes and other accessories available alongside our selection of stunning dresses in a range of colours and styles to suit everyone’s tastes and budgets. It promises to be a very special and glamorous weekend.”
