You may have heard the story in the news about the donation of a vintage wedding dress which was received by a charity shop. There was a note pinned to the dress saying how the gentleman who donated the dress has spent 56 happy years with his wife and how lucky he was to marry her.

The media got hold of the story and it made the nationals. A call was put out to trace the gentleman who had donated the dress and eventually the charity shop found out who he was. He lives in my little town but wants to remain anonymous. The charity shop supports St Gemma's, a local hospice, and they're auctioning the wedding dress on Ebay. The bid is currently at £6400.00 but there's still five days left to go.
It's such a heartwarming story, so nice to read something positive in the news instead of all doom and gloom. I hope the dress raises lots of money for such a worthwhile cause.
