St Leonard’s one-off one-stop wedding shop!

The St Leonard’s Hospice shop on Layerthorpe is opening its doors on Sunday 3 April for a wedding spectacular – the charity shop will be selling all things wedding for one day only – with wedding dresses from just £20!


There will be over 100 preloved gowns up for grabs, with a wide range of styles, including vintage dresses and never worn sample pieces, plus all the extras for a sustainable one-off special day.


There’s something for everyone with bridesmaids, pageboys, mother of the bride/groom all catered for, and all locally sourced from kind donations from local people.


The whole shop will be a wedding planner’s dream selling nothing but wedding items on the day, plus there will be a surprise theme to give you added inspiration for the big day!


Helen Woodhead, Shop Manager, said: “The idea came from one single dress we had donated to us. From there, the donations started flooding in. We have a very loyal customer base and thank the people of York and the surrounding area for their generous donations. Our volunteers have gone above and beyond to get this event off the ground, including travelling around York to collect dresses, and have even made lots of lovely wedding bunting!”


The whole shop will be full of nothing but wedding items – including handbags, shoes, hats, jewellery, underskirts, and even china! So, if you’re getting married or going to a wedding this year – you’re not going to want to miss it!”


Spring wedding spectacular takes places at St Leonard’s Hospice shop on 60, Layerthorpe, York on Sunday 3 April, from 9.30am – 4pm. Entry is free.
