HARLOW students looking forward to their prom have attended an event offering free dresses and suits.

It was the first time charity Rainbow Services, with support from North Essex Support Team (NEST), had put on the event in Harlow.

Kelly Tarling, project lead at Rainbow Services, said “It was about making sure parents did not get into debt….their child gets the prom outfit they would like and deserve”.

All the outfits and accessories were donated by local residents.

Chief Executive of Rainbow Services, Sharon Summerfield said: “We have been working with North Essex based charity NEST for some time and are delighted to have been able to bring their event to Harlow!

We have been overwhelmed with positive feedback, and will definitely make the event a permanent fixture in the Rainbow Services calendar.

“Many of the families we work with had told us their young people were missing out on school proms because they simply couldn’t afford outfits to wear to them, so it has been lovely to be able to do something to help with that. 

“We gave away over 40 outfits on the day”.
