Our shops are really important to us, raising millions to help us provide incredible care to those who need it. People with cancer, Parkinson' disease, multiple sclerosis, Huntingdon's all benefit from care we provide at our hospices and neurological centres across the UK.
As you might imagine, we rely hugely on the generosity of the public donating their unwanted items to us so we can continue our work. Whilst most of these items are unwanted, that doesn't mean they are unloved...
The dress was delivered with a note that simply said "A very much 'new look' dress bought at Susan Small, Commercial Street, Leeds, 1953 for (I think) 8 guineas."
It must have been very hard to part with such a treasured item, and we were obviously thrilled to get such a generous gift. But we only feel it's right that we're able to say thank you properly, and maybe find out a bit more about the dress itself.
So, we need people to help us #findthegroom. The dress was given to our shop in Headingley, near Leeds so we believe the groom is local to that area. If anyone recognises the dress, or might know anything about it, we'd love to hear from you!
We rely greatly on generous donations - we can turn your unwanted things into care for those who need it. From time to time, some donated goods really need to have their story told.
Can you help?!
Tweet this, post it on Facebook - and hopefully we'll be able to add to the dresses already great story.
Email email@example.com if you have any details that might help us track down our generous donor, or tweet @Sue_Ryder #findthegroom. Thank you!
Update to #findthegroom - it's now #foundthegroom!
