St Luke’s Pop Up Shop
In this oh so fickle world where it seems nothing is permanent, it has become ever more important for charity shops to catch a sale wherever they can. Ever since the deplorable Mary Portas declared war upon the traditional charity shop, a revolution has begun. Goodbye to the rickety shelves teetering with scratched records, ‘80s jumpers and porcelain cats, hello to a new and fashionable philanthropy industry. The latest efforts to secure some much needed cash for worthy causes has emerged in the form of the eco pop up shop, a mobile fashion store with proceeds heading to charity.
Recognising the incredible potential of using the public’s intrinsic love of fashion to promote charitable donations, St Luke’s Hospice has decided to launch their own temporary store on Thursday 30th and Friday 31st July. They will be gracing Whitecross Street Market manned to the teeth by those in the know about fashion. The store will be made of entirely donated, second hand and vintage clothes, and all designer fashion starts from a respectable £25.
The profits will be forwarded to The St Luke’s Centre, who provide help to the socially excluded in the EC1 area.
