Gaynor.JPGCancer Research UK are launching a wedding dress donation campaign and have just released some interesting figures. Apparently, 60% of us ladies keep our wedding dress whilst 7% donate them to charity and a further 7% customise their gowns for other occasions. Naturally the charity wants you to part with your gown so they can raise funds via their eBay site. A percentage of profits will then go directly to Cancer Research UK though they don’t say how much.

Actress Gaynor Faye (pictured, left) is supporting the campaign and has donated the £2,000 Maggie Sottero wedding dress she wore in TV series Fat Friends. It will go on sale on 24th May.


If you want to offload your old dress this is a great charity to support but don’t feel guilty if you want to keep it! [via Marie Claire]
