The Prom Dress Giveaway 2014



It is official... prom dress pressure has already begun for the parents of year 11 girls! These elaborate occasions seem to get bigger and more expensive year by year.

We are well aware that this excitement is not shared by all, and can be the source of extreme anxiety for some pupils and their parents.
In previous years around prom time, here at the Catwalk Cafe, we have given away a prom dress to a deserving young lady to allow her to attend a prom when she might otherwise have been unable to do so.
This year we would like to help many girls by also collecting donated dresses and gifting them to young women whose families may be struggling financially. 
Please consider donating that evening gown or cocktail dress that you no longer wear, by bringing it into the Catwalk Cafe on your next visit. Dresses will be collected until the end of March 2014 when they will be offered to a selection of young ladies nominated by their friends or family. Any gowns not claimed by our nominees will be donated to local charities.
To nominate a deserving recipient please write to the address below, or email via the website. Naturally, all nominations will be treated with the utmost confidence. Selected nominees will be invited to attend individual appointments to select a suitable prom dress during the month of April 2014.
