Action Cancer Holywood Group host a Preloved Wardrobe Sale to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness Month

There’s no doubt a good wardrobe clear out lifts the spirits but raising funds for a good cause at the same time surely tops the feel-good scales.

On Saturday 19th October, the fashionable ladies of the Action Cancer Holywood Group will be doing just that when they host their first Preloved Wardrobe Sale in the Old School House, Church Road, Holywood.

From hats and handbags to ready to wear classics from leading designer names and top high street brands, this event is definitely one for the style-savvy shopper’s diary.  It’s not only the ladies that will be able to pick up some bargains, children’s wear and menswear will also be for sale. 

As well as the Action Cancer Committee’s large collection of preloved items being sold to boost the charity funds, the sale will include stalls from fashion conscious local ladies who, for a donation of £35 per stall, will be selling their own clothing and accessories.

Speaking ahead of the event, Action Cancer Holywood Group Chairwoman, Kathryn Ennis said, “You only need to look at ebay to realise that there is a growing and vibrant market for preloved or second hand clothing.  Whether you want to snap up a few fashion classics such as a great blazer, a cool pair of jeans or a “worn once” wedding outfit, the Action Cancer Holywood Group’s Preloved Sale is the place to come and have a browse.”

“As a committee, we are trying to be ruthless with our own wardrobe clear-outs and we have a great range of very good quality items for all the family for sale!  At a time where everyone is feeling the financial pinch, much of the stigma attached to buying or indeed selling second hand clothing has disappeared. It’s rare that people ‘wear out’ clothes out anymore, even children’s clothes tend to stand the test of time, so whilst you may be fed up with last seasons coat or shoes, someone else will be delighted with them!”

In keeping with the whole vintage vibe of the venue and the sale, the entry fee of £3 includes tea/coffee and shortbread.  Doors open at 11am-3pm.  Anyone wishing to donate good quality items to the committee are asked to contact Sarah Stout on 07971 797057.
