A television news presenter has donated almost two dozen outfits to charity.

ITV presenter Kylie Pentelow handed 22 dresses, jackets and shoes to the St Peter’s Hospice shop in Clevedon’s Hill Road last week.

The collection includes outfits by designers such as Karen Millen, Reid’s Hobbs and Principles and shoes from LK Bennett.

Some of the dress would have originally been sold for around £200.

Kylie said: “It was about time to clear out my wardrobe, and I love to give my clothes to charity, especially St Peter’s Hospice shops, where I know the money which is raised in the shop gets spent on providing hospicecare in the local area.”

The presenter has visited the St Peter’s Hospice, based in Bristol, on multiple occasions to visit patients, staff and volunteers.

The hospice last autumn opened a new inpatient unit, costing between £6.5-7million after receiving £1.5million in donations.
