Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge prom dress and suit lending service holding open day


A unique dress and suit lending service at King Alfred School Academy in Highbridge is holding an open day today (Saturday, June 22nd).

The school’s PreLoved Prom scheme has seen hundreds of dresses and suits plus school clothing donated from the local community and beyond.

The clothing can be borrowed by students, in addition to local residents, in echange for a donation to the charity Weston Hospice with £1,000 donated so far

Preloved Prom are holding an open morning today from 9:30am – 12:30pm. If you would like to attend please sign up for free here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/preloved-prom-saturday-opening-tickets-921035049627?aff=erelexpmlt

The scheme launched four years ago and has proven so successful that students from other schools and academies are also setting up their own similar schemes.

A spokesperson says: “At the PreLoved Prom store, sustainability meets style as they are offering a unique opportunity for students to access high-quality clothing for a small donation. The Preloved Prom scheme has attracted students from all corners of the country, providing them with the chance to borrow dresses and suits.”

“The initiative is not only for TKASA students – students from other schools and members of the public are welcome to have a browse and find their dream dress or suit.”

“Thanks to generous donations from previous students and the local community, the PreLoved store now also offers a wide range of uniform supplies, including shirts, ties, blazers, PE kit, toiletries, revision books, and study resources. Whether you’re preparing for school or a special occasion, there is something for everyone.”

“The school works in partnership with Weston Hospicecare charity and when you hire an outfit you are invited to make a donation to support this worthy cause. Every penny raised goes towards supporting the invaluable work of Weston Hospice.”

“Whether you’re seeking the perfect gown or a sharp suit, the PreLoved Prom team are here to make your prom dreams a reality while championing sustainability and supporting those in need.”
