A ‘Fall for Preloved’ evening is being held to showcase new autumn and winter designer brands at the Royal Trinity Hospice charity shop on Fulham Road.
Shoppers can take advantage of being the first to see the new seasonal range at a special preview event at Royal Trinity Hospice’s newly refitted branch this September.
Stock will feature the very best preloved donations as well as unique and exclusive items donated directly from brand partners including some of the biggest names in fashion retail.
New pieces donated by Harrods, Hugo Boss, Anthropologie, DAKS, Wolverine Worldwide and Robert Todd will be available for customers to explore for the first time on Thursday 22 September 2022.
Royal Trinity Hospice shops have made it their mission to be ‘London’s answer to sustainable fashion’ and partner with many iconic and independent brands who choose to donate good quality stock ensuring items are re-used rather than sent for textile recycling.
With demand for the event expected to be high, pre-booking is essential for the ‘Fall for preloved’ event. Guests can reserve their space by booking a £5 ticket, which can be redeemed on any purchase at the event.
Ticket holders will be able to shop, and enjoy a complimentary drink as they take a first look at the new collection.
Daniel Holloway is the Director of Retail for Royal Trinity Hospice and knows the chance to be the first through the door to buy exceptional donations will be a big draw for the environmentally conscious shopper and designer bargain hunters alike. He said, “This will be a really exciting event for the team at our hugely successful Fulham branch and customers who want to find something really special but for a fraction of the price they would normally pay. ‘Fall for preloved’ is about showcasing some of the best donations we have received at the start of the season to kick off the new collection.”
Royal Trinity Hospice has twenty charity shops located across central and south west London, all playing a role in helping raise the £11 million needed annually to supplement NHS funds to provide the hospice’s specialist palliative and end of life care.
New and nearly new donations from brand partners alone helped raise over £1 million last year. Every sale helps to fund palliative care provided free of charge to around 2,500 Londoners a year.
Phase Eight are one of the brands who support Trinity, Lauren Bloomfield from their Buying department said, “As a company, Phase Eight support numerous charities across the UK, and our partnership with Royal Trinity Hospice and their team is extremely special to us. We have chosen Trinity as they are so passionate about helping the environment which is in line with our company goals. We take pride in donating our samples to Trinity, supporting the incredible work the hospice do to provide for families’ and individuals’ end of life care. As a brand we are committed to taking responsibility for our environmental impact which we are continuously working hard on to achieve our goals.”
