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 have been asked to identify and invite young people along to a pop-up prom dress shop in early May, where they can choose a dress free of charge. This year, we’ve contacted over 40 schools in Luton, St Albans, Hemel Hempstead, Dunstable, Harpenden, Welwyn and Hatfield, but any school in Herts and Beds can take part.
If you are a head of year 11 in a Herts or Beds secondary school, you can request invites to our pop-up shop for any students that receive pupil premium. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the number invites required and the address to send them to.
We can’t guarantee everyone who visits our shop will find a dress that suits them, but the more dresses we get donated, the bigger the selection they’ll have to choose from!
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.
* We hope to add suits next year.
