  • ‘Frock’ your way around the rails; choosing treasures you’d like to take home
  • There will be opportunities to try clothes on

All unswapped garments will be donated to Children’s Air Ambulance in West Bridgford.

The charity provides inter-hospital transfer service flying babies and children from one hospital to another for specialist care. They work with NHS paediatric and neonatal retrieval teams across the UK, enabling them to bring their specialist equipment on board to safely transfer their patients from one hospital to another. Their ability to fly approximately four times faster than a land ambulance, can minimise travel times and the risk for little patients.
