Designer brands auctioned for Autism Guernsey

Handbags, accessories and the latest designer frocks and shoes will be available at bargain prices at a fund-raising fashion show and auction for Autism Guernsey next week.

The charity event, sponsored by JT, is being held on Wednesday 22nd June at the St Pierre Park Hotel where donated dresses and outfits in sizes 6-22 will be modelled on the catwalk by some of the volunteers who help at the charity. They’ll be showing off high street brands and designer outfits, with additional clothes, shoes and handbags also available for sale.

And it’s not just designer clothing that’ll be going under the hammer. Among the many amazing auction lots donated by local businesses are pamper hampers, champagne, jewellery, cosmetics and much more plus a JT One Ultra subscription, kindly donated by JT.

Tamara O’Brien, Deputy Managing Director at JT Guernsey, said: “The Autism Guernsey Charity Fashion Show and Auction is a much-loved annual event and tickets sell out every year which we are delighted to be sponsoring. It promotes purchasing pre-owned outfits as a more sustainable way of buying clothes, as well as offering our Guernsey community some designer bargains and a fun night out. We hope it’s hugely successful and well attended so that Autism Guernsey can raise further funds towards the great work they do for our island and islanders.”

Tickets, which include a drink on arrival, cost £17.50 and are selling fast. They are available from Autism Guernsey on 01481 232879 or by emailing office@autismguernsey.org.gg.

Mandy Rowlinson, Fundraising Manager at Autism Guernsey, added: “Every time we hold this event it gets bigger and better. We raised nearly £5,000 when we last held it in 2021 with guests coming away with designer dresses and Mulberry handbags. Autism Guernsey couldn’t run their fundraising events without the help of our fantastic volunteers and our incredible partner JT, so a big thank you to them all for their help and support.”
