LOOKING GOOD: Abbots Langley charity shop helps to raise £6,000 with sustainable fashion show

Volunteers and staff from Abbots Langley’s Hospice of St Francis charity shop helped to organise a sustainable fashion show last month.

Hosted at Shendish Manor on February 1, the hospice’s charity shops partnered with Oaklands College students to create the Green with Envy Fashion Show.

Trevor South, manager at the Abbots Langley store, strutted his stuff in an Elvis costume and an 80s-inspired tennis outfit.

He said: “We gave students from Oaklands College a load of recycled clothes and they turned them into amazing outfits. Around 60 volunteers and staff got up there and gave it a go as well as the students.

“It was all about sustainability, which is extremely important to us now. We’re here to help the community in hard times. There’s definitely been an uptake in people coming in recently as people can’t always afford to buy new. Pricewise, we always do as much as we can to keep it as low as possible.”

The evening at Shendish Manor raised £6,000 to help the hospice continue to provide vital care.
