A Crawley wedding dress shop is giving brides the chance to wear their gowns again in the name of charity.

Yasemin’s Gowns is joining forces with To Have & To Hire bridal shop neat Worthing to host a charity ball at Long Furlong Barn, South Downs National Park on Friday March 11.

The ball will be a chance for attendees to wear their wedding dresses if they so please.

The event is for the Wedding Wishing Well Foundation, which aims to organise and fund weddings for terminally ill people, and SASH Charity, which raises money for patient care provided at Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust (SASH).

The money raised for SASH Charity will go to those in care for breast cancer.

The event promises to be a fun evening, featuring performances from a live band, DJ and magician, as well as a raffle and charity auction with items donated by local businesses.

All attendees will be treated to a three-course meal.

Joanne Danton from Yasemin’s Gowns said: “Hosting a charity ball where people can wear their wedding dress again is very exciting.

“Being able to donate to amazing charities at the same time is the icing on the cake.”

The charity ball will take place on Friday March 11th between 7pm-11:30pm.

Tickets cost £55 per person or £500 for a table of 10 and are available to purchase from Emily Fox at emily@longfurlongbarn.co.uk
