The Clothing Bank opened its doors today. As last time we had prom dresses and prom suits available to loan as well as our more usual items. It was a bit of a quiet day, maybe the freak stormy weather around the Durham area persuaded people to stay home. We were far from lonely though- we still had plenty of visitors.
Here is Katie who looks absolutely beautiful in the prom dress she has chosen. As predicted there was much ooohing and aaahing from the volunteers when she tried it on
Not quite so glamorous but still as lovely- here is one of our volunteers modelling one of a range of very smart coats that we have been given.
A huge thank you to Just Perfect at Shotton who have donated so much prom clothing to us. We would also like to thank all our volunteers and donators- we really could not do this without your help. We may also have found our first Clothing Bank bride after a young woman came to see us today and asked if loaning a wedding dress was possible. We were pleased to say that yes, it was. More news on that as and when it happens
Finally we would like to wish Catherine, one of the Clothing Bank founders, a speedy recovery. She has been a bit poorly recently so take care Catherine- get well soon.
