It can be one of the happiest moments of a young student’s life – the school prom.
But what happens when someone is desperate to attend but can’t afford a dress like those worn by their peers?
Step forward Rita Krafczyk, a mother from Shropshire. And for some, a fairy godmother figure.
Under her Cinderella Project, she’s collected more than 200 prom, wedding and bridesmaids dresses to donate to those in dire need of that special something on a special day. After the event, the frocks are theirs to keep.
Rita was inspired after seeing a schoolgirl in tears because she hadn’t a stitch to wear to the biggest night of the year.
