This year’s Stage Experience production of Whistle Down the Wind took place in August at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre, and showcased the talent of over 100 local youngsters in the 4-show run.
Hundreds of items of clothing for the cast of 8-25 year olds, from checked shorts to denim blouses, gingham shirts to dungarees and pinafore dresses, were donated by the public and Florence Nightingale Hospice Shops in support of the production when the Theatre promised to launder and return everything to FNHC Shops to sell after the show.
“We were delighted to be able to support the Waterside’s Stage Experience team in providing costumes,” said Kirsty Shanahan, PR & Marketing Manager at FNHC. “It’s great that the show was like a catwalk, showcasing just some of the items available throughout our Shops, and we’re so grateful to the Waterside for organising this unusual source of clothing donations for sale in our Shops!”
The clothing was picked up this week by the FNHC van (above) and will be in the Aylesbury High Street and Walton Court Shops this weekend!
