DHS Eco Boutique

Dress_Heart_Style: Launching the DHS Eco Boutique

We are thrilled to be able to plan for an S6 Prom this year. Alongside this, we have had discussions with young people around the costs involved and, from an environmental perspective, the discomfort of potentially buying items to be worn once only.

To this end, we are looking for your support. We want to create a bank of formal clothing that young people of all genders and all body types can access to wear for their prom. We would like to collect:

  • Bags
  • Costume jewellery
  • Shoes
  • Dresses
  • Suit jackets and trousers
  • Ties

There will be no cost to young people to access these items but, if they wish, they can choose to make a donation to support the people of Ukraine. Young people will be asked to return the items after use so that they can then be reused the next year or go to a local charity as appropriate.

Donations should be handed in to the Pupil Support base between 8.30 and 8.40am any morning up until Friday 25th March. The Pupil Support Leaders will then organise for S6 classes to be able to visit the boutique ahead of the Easter break.

Thank you in advance for your support of our young people and their environment.
