The Northlakes High School Leo Club has launched a new initiative to provide free formal dresses to Year 10 and Year 12 students who may be doing it tough financially this year.
The initiative is called Belle of the Ball, and Northlakes High School Leo Advisor, Lynda Elsley, said they had 40 new dresses from a formalwear shop that closed down and lots of preloved formal dresses.
“There are many families out in the community who are struggling financially this year, particularly families who have had their parents not working because of COVID lockdown.
“The dresses are truly beautiful, most are long dresses, some beaded and sequined, some with diamante features on them and others are plain.
“There are so many styles and designs with sizes from 4-18.
“Many of the dresses still have the original price tag on the dress so no one will ever know that you didn’t pay over $300 for your dress,” Elsley said.
Confidential sessions to try on these dresses at Chittaway Bay are available by booking in with Lynda Elsley on 0449 057 780.
