Towie stars meet their fans on a visit to Upminster charity shop for gravely ill children
Two stars from reality TV show The Only Way Is Essex visited an Upminster charity shop last week.
Lydia Bright and her mum Debbie from the ITV2 show went to the Richard House Children’s Hospice shop, in Corbets Tey Road, Upminster, on Thursday.
They met the volunteer staff, had pictures taken with fans and signed autographs in exchange for a donation to the charity.
Lydia, who is known for her fashion sense in the show, was on the hunt for a vintage bargain, while Debbie bought toys and a shawl.
“Mum and I are delighted to be supporting our local children’s hospice, Richard House,” said Lydia. “It supports children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and is needed more than ever.
