Bicester Village in Oxfordshire might not be that well-known to many Britons, but it’s actually one of this country’s most popular tourist attractions. An outlet shopping centre (meaning it stocks cheaper prices for many typically-very-expensive brands), it’s apparently one of the most-visited places in the entire UK by Chinese tourists. Back in 2015, only Buckingham Palace saw more Chinese visitors.
And now there are even more reasons for everyone to pop over to Bicester Village. The outlet paradise has launched a second-hand designer pop-up store that is supporting women’s charities.
The pop-up is called Do Good and it comes from the Bicester Collection. Up for grabs will be designer clothes from the likes of Oliver Bonas, Loewe, LK Bennett and more, with a massive 100 percent of proceeds going directly to women’s charities Women for Women’s International and Smart Works.
There are two charity events taking place. The first, which is for Women For Women’s International, is on now and runs until September 18. This charity focuses on women who are survivors of war and conflict. The second event is from September 21 to October 4, with proceeds going to Smart Works – a charity that helps unemployed women get back into jobs.
So, if you want to cop some fab vintage garms and do some good for women’s charities, get down to Bicester Village! For more info on the Village and how to get to there, see our official Time Out guide here.
