At 10am on Sunday 5th February we opened Dressing It Up, a pop up Prom and Wedding Dress shop at The Royals Shopping Centre, Southend-on-Sea.

We were delighted to find a crowd of shoppers waiting for us to open on the day and we have been blown away by the support of our customers and the management of the centre.

We have helped many brides to say ‘Yes To The Dress’ and many young ladies find their dream dress for prom night.

Star of Loose Women and Birds of a Feather Linda Robson and local MP Anna Firth have visited. Linda was very keen to hear about our unique nurse services and discussed the importance of early detection. She loved our Hug In A Shrug boob scarf, it may even make an appearance on Loose Women – keep your eyes peeled!

We have loved our time in the shop, all funds raised will go straight back into the charity, allowing us to continue supporting our community with advice, education and awareness for your overall breast health.

Everyday our nurses help people to become breast aware, learn how to check themselves, find the cause of breast pain and listen to your concerns or worries. Appointments can be face to face, via video link or telephone.
