Hospice Wedding Plea Answered by Acclaim and Friend of the Animals

Earlier this month, we were delighted to assist with an urgent appeal from Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull, Birmingham to deliver two wedding dresses from the Isle of Wight to the Hospice in time for a very special wedding.

Newport-based charity Friends of the Animals was made aware of a last-minute plea by the Hospice for a wedding dress. They had recently been given two hundred brand new wedding dresses by a bridal shop in Ryde that had closed, and among this lovely collection were two short and flared dresses with a full skirt in traditional 1950s style, matching the preferred style of the bride.

Once the dresses had been located, the next challenge was how to get them shipped from the Isle of Wight to Birmingham as quickly as possible! Luckily our amazing Acclaim team stepped in and transported the precious cargo up to the Hospice for the wedding, delivering it at 8am on Friday morning for free! One of our lovely drivers, Brad, had the pleasure of taking the dresses to the Hospice for the bride.
