WOMEN and girls in Winsford are stepping out in designer outfits and prom dresses costing a fraction of the original cost.

This is thanks to a new fundraising drive by Motherwell Cheshire, with the women’s health and wellbeing charity now selling pre-loved items on the Vinted app.

The award-winning charity, which provides services across Winsford, has more than 400 items listed on the app starting from as little as £1.

These include dresses, coats, bags and shoes from top name brands like Phase Eight, Ralph Lauren, Finery, Michael Kors and Radley.

Families can pick up baby necessities and school uniform items, as well stationery and football boots, astroturf trainers and shin pads from a well-stocked footlocker.

Youngsters looking towards end of year proms can also find a range of beautiful occasion wear dresses and suits for a small donation.

It is the latest venture by Motherwell Cheshire to help fund its services to the community which include a popular school uniform recycling scheme.

Hub co-ordinator Nadine Walker said: “Last year we provided more than £30,000 of recycled clothing to the community, and we expect to top that this year as demand grows.

“We hope Vinted will become a viable income stream.

“Women have generously donated dresses and accessories, and we would really encourage them to clear out their wardrobes and donate quality clothing they no longer wear.”

Motherwell Cheshire founder Kate Blakemore added: “Families see us as a lifeline, more so now as the weekly shop and everything in life costs so much more.

“Kitting out children and giving women and girls access to quality pre-loved clothing makes a big difference to our community.”
