Come and support Burn jewellery designer’s “party with a purpose”

Local jewellery designer Esme Louise Holmes is hosting a pop-up party with a purpose at The Wheatsheaf pub on Tuesday March 26 from 7pm.

Esme Louise, who was born and raised in Burn, supports Smart Works, the charity started in North London just five and a half years ago which has now helped over 11,000 women succeed at interviews and has just announced the Duchess of Sussex as its royal patron.

Esme has been volunteering her time with the charity in its Manchester branch since September last year as its values lie close to her own, both personally and professionally.

Every piece of jewellery on sale at the pop-up event will include a ten per cent donation to Smart Works, to help an unemployed woman by dressing and coaching her for interviews.

So if you are looking for an extra special item of jewellery for yourself or a loved one, come along to this celebration evening, which includes nibbles, wine, tea or coffee – and even little gift bags and a chance to win some beautiful prizes from other local independent businesses.

Esme Louise Pop-Up Shop – A night to celebrate the women in our lives!
7pm onwards, Tuesday March 26
The Wheatsheaf, Main Road, Burn, near Selby
