'Charity shopping with a stylist' idea hailed

October 26 2018

Bristol’s Independent District (managed by Gloucester Road Business Improvement District) is the proud recipient of a Highly Commended from Bath, Bristol and Somerset Tourism in recognition for their Charity Shopping Tours with a Personal Stylist.


The Charity Shop Tours combine a luxury experience with pre-loved clothes. Tours of Gloucester Road, led by personal shopper and run by Bristol's Independent District (BID), are encouraging eco-friendly fashionistas to hunt for charity shop bargains during a unique shopping experience that supports charity and promotes the local independent businesses.

As part of the Gloucester Road Business Improvement District, BID manager Anne-Louise Perez proposed the tours to encourage more people into Bristol’s thriving and creative independent areas.

“Gloucester Road is nationally recognised for its buzzing independent personality. Celebrating uniqueness is back on trend and charity shops certainly offer wide selection to express that.”
