Our designer boutique charity shop, Scarlet, raised over £4,000 for the hospice at their Spring/Summer 2018 collection launch party!
Our designer boutique charity shop raised thousands of pounds for St Clare at their Spring/Summer 2018 collection launch party on Thursday 22nd March 2018.
‘Scarlet’ is St Clare’s designer boutique located on Queens Road in Buckhurst Hill. Featuring high fashion brands such as Gucci, Burberry, Ralph Lauren, Chloé and Mulberry, the shop is a treasure trove of affordable high fashion clothing and accessories.
Scarlet sold 60 tickets to local hospice supporters for the event, raising over £4,000 in the sale of high fashion clothing and accessories on the night. The event raised enough in vital funding to pay for over a week’s worth of care from the our Patient & Family Support team, who offer life-changing practical, psychological, emotional and spiritual support to families facing one of life’s most difficult journeys.
Our Head of Retail, Fiona Eaton, said:
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came and attended our Spring/Summer 2018 collection launch party! By shopping with St Clare, you are enabling us to fund the vital care and support we offer to local people who are living with a life-limiting illness – and their families. The evening was bustling with a really enthusiastic energy, and it was wonderful to see so many people treating themselves to something lovely! We hope everyone enjoys their new buys!”
Shop Manager at Scarlet, Janice Cutts, commented:
“Huge thanks also go to all our St Clare supporters who donate their designer clothing and accessories to Scarlet; it is with their amazing generosity that this evening is such a special occasion for those who attend. Well done and thank you to our volunteers here at Scarlet, too, for giving their time and skills to St Clare.”
The next launch party at Scarlet will feature their Autumn/Winter 2018 collection, with tickets available to purchase later on in the year from the shop at 46 Queens Road, Buckhurst Hill, IG9 5BY. Details to follow.
