Joan Collins donates 150 items to U.K. charity store

Joan Collins has donated items from her personal wardrobe to a U.K. charity store.
The Dynasty actress and style icon is a patron of the Shooting Star Chase organisation and has offered around 150 of her own garments and accessories to be sold at the charity’s Guildford store.
Items for sale include an array of clothing, jewellery, hats, swimwear and items that Joan has not only worn, but designed herself under her clothing range Jackie Palmer.
The shop is running a silent auction for some of the most important items, including a Chanel handbag, a pair of Manolo Blahnik heels, a Tiffany & Co. necklace, an Alexander McQueen bracelet, a signed pair of L.K. Bennett shoes and a pair of earrings worn by Joan on the set of her hit TV show Dynasty.
Prices range from $6 (£5) to $1,200 (£1,000) and organisers hope to raise $12,000 (£10,000) to help babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions.
Director of fundraising at Shooting Star Chase, Karen Sugarman, says that Joan’s donation has been the talk of the town.
“Dame Joan has been a fantastic supporter of Shooting Star Chase for many years now and is always keen to show her support,” she said in a statement. “Her latest donation to our shops has caused a great buzz and we’ve had enquiries from fans all over the country who want to get their hands on one of Dame Joan’s fabulous items.”
Meanwhile, Joan, 83, who can be seen in E! network show The Royals, shared how touched she was to be invited to spend time at Shooting Star Chase’s Christopher’s hospice last month (Sep16).
“It’s so special to spend time with the children and their families,” she smiled. “I am honoured to be Patron to Shooting Star Chase whose charitable work really does change the lives of so many children.”
