St Peter's Hospice is holding a festive-themed evening at one of its local shops, giving people the chance to find the perfect Christmas party outfit.
The Festive Frocks Evening will be held at the award-winning St Peter's Hospice shop on Canford Lane, Westbury-on-Trym where shoppers will be able to try on and buy from the fabulous range of party clothes and accessories.
The event is taking place on Monday 25 November from 7-9pm and is the sixth annual Festive Frocks Evening held by the shop which raises vital funds for Bristol's only adult hospice.
As well as shopping for that perfect party dress guests will be able to browse the 'good as new' Christmas goods, pick up St Peter's Hospice cards and diaries and buy Super Draw raffle tickets to be in with the chance of winning £5000 in time for Christmas.
Westbury-on-Trym St Peter's Hospice shop manager Mandi Gibbs said: "The Festive Frocks Evening is a favourite of ours on the Calendar. It's become a really fun event in Westbury-on-Trym and allows people to socialise, while shopping and raising money.
"It gives the opportunity for everybody to get into the Christmas spirit and we have some absolutely fab party wear, shoes and handbags, which are all in tip-top condition as well as other Christmassy goods.
"It's a really fun, friendly evening and raises some much needed money for St Peter's Hospice so we hope lots of people will be able to join us on the night!"
St Peter's Hospice, now in its 35th anniversary year, cares for more than 2,670 patients with life-limiting illnesses every year, as well as supporting family members. It costs £6.8 million to run the hospice yearly with 77% of that coming from the generosity of public and corporate support.
