Ladies fashion boutique Blue-eyed Dolls donated more than £414 to Sue Ryder’s new hospice appeal - £1 for every item sold during July.

After opening their doors in North Street, Bourne, the range of fashionable and affordable dresses, tops and playsuits flew off the rails during sunny July.

Owners Rachel Wormall and Sandy Smith were delighted to be able to donate the cash to the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice appeal, which aims to build a new £6m hospice alongside the current Grade II listed building.

Rachel said: “We wanted to support Sue Ryder’s hospice appeal because it’s a charity that is close to both of our hearts.

“We have seen the plans for the new hospice and think it will be an amazing transformation that will really help patients who go to Thorpe Hall.”

Collecting the cheque, Nilesh Patel, fundraiser at Sue Ryder said: “We’re very grateful for the donation from the Blue-eyed Dolls and their customers.

“It will continue to help us on the way towards our target for the new hospice.”

Blue-eyed Dolls offers all the latest ladies fashion from designers such as AX Paris, priced at between £15 and £50.

July saw over 400 items sold as their range of contemporary summer wear got Bourne’s residents spending.

Sandy added: “We’d like to thank all our customers that have supported the shop in our first month.

“We’ve been overwhelmed by how much excitement Blue-eyed Dolls has generated with ladies locally and we look forward to continuing to provide great clothes at affordable prices for years to come.”
