‘Wedding’ in aid of Earl Mountbatten Hospice at Jack Up The 80’s

Earl Mountbatten Hospice hosted a Festival Wedding Rehearsal at their Sunflower Pop Up Shop at Jack Up the 80s . Bex and Jason (soon to be) Staal are due to be married and decided to stage their wedding rehearsal at the event to raise money for the Hospice. They raised around £200 in bucket donations. The Doughnut Girls kindly donated a wedding cake made of doughnuts and the dresses were lent by Oxfam.
