EastEnders star Lacey Turner auctions her clothes to fund abuse charity

EastEnders star has joined a campaign to raise money for domestic abuse charity Refuge during an unsettling time for those enduring it while locked down with their abuser during the coronavirus pandemic.

Best known for playing Stacey Fowler in the Walford soap, the actress is auctioning off three of her favourite outfits in order to help fund the campaign, which aims to support victims at a time when it must be even more difficult.

Calls to domestic abuse helplines have soared since lockdown and OK! magazine is working with Refuge on the fundraising efforts.

Lacey said: ‘I’m taking part in OK!’s Closet Clear-Out to raise money for a cause that is always important but more so now than ever! With many charities struggling through the impact of Covid 19 this is one that I feel passionate about doing my best to help.

‘I hope we can raise some money to help the many people who need it.’

As part of her collection, Lacey has offered her favourite vintage jumper that has kept her warm for over 10 years.

She said: ‘I absolutely love this jumper, I’ve had this about 10 years, it’s the best winter jumper made from thick wool and I wear it to death every winter.’

She has also listed a multi-coloured sequin dress she once wore during her honeymoon with husband Matt Kay.

She added: ‘I wore this on New Year’s Eve on my honeymoon – probably the funnest thing in my wardrobe.’

With bids starting at 99p, she also included a dress she wore at the National TV Awards.

Other celebrities taking part include Helen Mirren, Shirley Ballas and Katie Price.

Kym Marsh and Patrick Stewart are also offering up some of their favourite outfits.
