Barnardo's flagship charity shop in Marylebone, UK, has received top-quality donations from star singer Dame Shirley Bassey.

The Welsh diva has dropped off bags of top designer clothes and shoes at the George Street Barnardo’s charity shop in Marylebone. Donations include a Ralph Lauren cardigan, Sonia Rykiel skirt and Davos Gomma and Paul Mayer Shoes.

Shop Manager, Russell Lewendon, said: ‘We are over the moon with this generous donation. There has already been a lot of interest in the items so people need to get down here fast if they want to snap up a celebrity bargain! It’s great that Dame Shirley thought of us, as although we welcome all donations, it’s a special treat to be able to sell the clothes of such a star".

In the past the Marylebone shop has seen similarly top notch donations from Jonathan Ross, Dame Helen Mirren, Rosamund Pike, Kate Winslet and model Laura Bailey. Michelle Collins and Melinda Messenger also attended the opening of the store in November 2006. Top designer names that have been found in the shop include Jenny Packham, Ben de Lisi, D&G, Gurani Stock and Vivienne Westwood.

All funds raised from the sale of these celebrity goods will go towards Barnardo’s vital work turning around the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK. This includes work with children affected by today’s most urgent issues: poverty, homelessness, disability, bereavement and abuse.

The Barnardo’s Marylebone shop is located at 7 George Street, Marylebone, London W1U 3QH.
