Sally Allen’s glamorous donation to Rowcroft Hospice

Rowcroft Hospice is thrilled to receive a collection of glamorous stock from Sally Allen’s Designer Fashion which is currently being sold in the Dartmouth and Wellswood Rowcroft Boutiques. After hearing CEO Mark Hawkins speak at the Torbay Business Breakfast Meeting in June, Sally approached Mark with the suggestion of a generous donation of brand new stock.

Mark described the donation as the beginning of a new relationship between the hospice and Sally’s fashion enterprise. Mark commented, “We are so thankful to Sally for donating so many wonderful fashionable clothes and accessories. It is always great to see a key business leader, like Sally, stepping in and supporting us this way and we feel very excited about future collaborations in support of Rowcroft”

The Rowcroft retail department has recently launched a small and carefully selected range of new goods across the 16 shop estate. The selling of new goods is something that the majority of charity shops now do and Rowcroft are already seeing the commercial benefits.

Sally said, “As the majority of the stock sold in the Rowcroft shops is pre-loved, I feel that the new stock will be adding to the customer offering. Rowcroft is an organisation close to my heart; I am very pleased to be supporting such an important service in our community.”

Sally’s generous donation also included mannequins, shop fittings, rails and display cabinets. With the Rowcroft retail estate looking to grow again by the early autumn with the opening of a new shop, Sally’s involvement with Rowcroft really is perfectly timed.

Sally added, “The stock covers a range of styles; the cotton t-shirts and silk tops are perfect for summer to dress up or keep casual, and the cocktail dresses are ideal for special occasions.”

Tracey Turner, Manager of the Rowcroft Boutique in Wellswood said, “Sally’s pieces have been flying out of the shop, there has been a real buzz about the collection. The stock really complements the rest of the boutique with some really pretty prints for summer. As we move into autumn-winter we will be stocking some of Sally’s more tailored pieces as well as sparkly evening wear ready for the Christmas party season.”
