Our Cobham shop is hosting a one-time wedding fayre over 21 – 27 March, where thousands of pounds in discounts will be available on dozens of boutique wedding and bridesmaid dresses, shoes, tiaras, and other wedding items – many of which have never been worn or are sample items. Photos of these dresses, details of the other items and appointment booking information is available here for online viewing.

Dresses and other items come from high-end designers such as Vera Wang, Charlotte Mills, Sottero and Midgley, Sadoni, Tara Keely, Arianna, and Poirier, and were generously donated to us by bridal boutiques.

The stock, which would retail at well over a hundred-thousand-pounds, will be sold, for some items, at a fifth of the price. It is hoped that the fayre will raise tens-of-thousands of pounds, helping us to continue to provide our vital care to the children and families we support.

Dozens of dresses and items will be available in the shop over the week, and brides-to-be and other interested parties are strongly encouraged to contact the shop directly to make appointments in advance of the fayre, who are already accepting appointments.  A dresser and shop assistants will be available, and the charity has teamed up with local fitting and alteration businesses to be able to offer a comprehensive service.

Shooting Star Children’s Hospices Cobham Shop Manager, Helen Pilmer, said, “We are delighted to be offering this opportunity for brides from near and afar to save hundreds, if not thousands of pounds, on stunning designer dresses and other items. We hope that they will leap at this opportunity, and in so doing help a truly wonderful charity, absolutely dedicated to caring for children with life-limiting conditions. Knowing that your special day has provided some degree of comfort to a family navigating an unimaginable situation is truly priceless gift to give back.”
