One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
£20K Of Designer Dresses Donated To Shelter Shop
Charity shop staff have said they were left "in shock'' after receiving a donation of ball gowns and prom dresses worth around £20,000.
About 60 designer pieces - all with their original price tags still attached showing they are worth up to £295 each - were handed in to the Shelter Scotland store in Dundee.
The items are now up for sale in the charity's Perth Road shop for £30 each.
The donation was made by Prego Boutique in Broughty Ferry and also includes knitwear, skirts, jackets and trousers.
Shelter shop manager Karen Kelbie said: "In my 20 years of managing the shop, I've never seen anything like it. We're all still in shock.
"The dresses are just beautiful and perfect for anyone who has a formal occasion coming up - a wedding, a school prom or graduation ball.
"What could be better than dancing the night away in a beautiful dress, knowing you've just helped a vulnerable homeless person or a family living in poor quality housing?
"We are so grateful for this donation and it will make a big difference to Shelter Scotland's work.''
Prego Boutique owner Liza Sinclair said: "After hearing about the vital work of Shelter Scotland I was moved to do whatever I could to help those in need, and a donation of some of our beautiful dresses to the Dundee shop made perfect sense.
"If by doing our little bit we can make a difference to even one person, then it'll all be worth it.''

Police described it as "terrifying''.
A collision between an aircraft and a drone was only "avoided by providence'', air investigators have reported.
