No teenage girl should miss their school prom because they can’t afford a dress to wear.
All Dressed Up is a not-for-profit project that gifts donated prom dresses to school students in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire that need them.
To ensure the dresses reach those in most financial need; schools, social workers and youth services in Herts and Beds are asked to identify and invite young people along to a pop-up shop where they can choose a prom dress free of charge.
In 2019 we contacted over 50 schools in Luton, Dunstable, St Albans, Harpenden, Hitchin, Hemel Hempstead, Hatfield and Welwyn Garden City, but schools outside those areas were also welcome to request invites. We received 370 donated prom dresses and more than one-third were brand new.
Launched by Lara Davis in 2019, All Dressed Up receives no funding, so we are very grateful to all our project partners and volunteers for their support.
