Bride-to-be Lucy Webster will be smiling all the way up the aisle, having bagged the wedding dress of her dreams – at an amazing bargain price.

Student pharmacist Lucy, aged 23 and from Shelton near Hanley, had been looking for the perfect wedding dress by browsing through glossy bridal magazines. Her favourite dress was priced at almost £1,000.

Lucy’s mum Rebecca Webster, from Trentham, said: “A friend of ours told us all about the Newlife SuperStore so we made this our first stop-off to look at and try on dresses.”

Mum and daughter visited the Newlife SuperStore in Hemlock Way, Cannock – on Wednesday 8 August – where Lucy found the dress featured in Brides on the display rails, tried it on and bought it at the bargain price of £249. “It was the very first wedding dress I have actually tried on – and it’s perfect,” she said.

Lucy added: “It’s great to find the dress of my dreams and at such a good price. It’s also nice to know that the money will go to help disabled children, through the Newlife Foundation charity. It makes the dress even more special. And to complete the outfit I also bought a lovely tiara at the SuperStore.”

Lucy, a student at Keele University, will be marrying fiancé Daniel Jones, aged 24, next August at St Mary and All Saints Church in Trentham near Stoke. Daniel is a chef at the Fat Cats Café Bar in Hanley.

The Newlife SuperStore sells a range of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and accessories, all donated by High Street stores in support of Newlife Foundation for Disabled Children.

The charity’s trading company works with around 150 chainstores, taking their returned and end-of-season stock, de-labelling it and selling it at heavily discounted prices. All the proceeds support Newlife’s charitable aims, which include operating a national nurse helpline, funding vital specialist equipment for children across the UK, investing in medical research and campaigning for a better deal for families of disabled young people.

Newlife at Home – retailing donated home wares – is also based in Hemlock Way, Cannock; a second clothing store, Newlife Uttoxeter, can be found in the Staffordshire town’s High Street.
