Pop up boutique The Willow Wardrobe has raised more than £14,000 for charity after opening for just four days at a shopping centre in Walton. The pop up shop was filled with quality new and pre-loved clothing, as well as pieces donated by designers including Alice Temperley, Whistles, Reiss and French Connection.
All proceeds from the pop up shop will go to the Willow Foundation. The charity was set up by football legend Bob Wilson and his wife Megs in 1999 after they lost their daughter to cancer. It provides support to people between the ages of 16 and 40 who are living with a life threatening illness.
Surrey-based stylist Sarah Jarrett, who headed up the pop up initiative, has been delighted with the outcome.
“I can’t believe the response, it’s been phenomenal. It’s such a simple concept, which has proved unbelievably successful”, she said.
