Corrie couple open new Bury bridal boutique

Sally Carman (Abi Franklin) and Joe Duttine (Tim Metcalfe) made the opening of a new bridal shop in Bury one to remember, reports The Bury Times

The bridal shop is a new venture for Bury Hospice and will support its work providing vital care for people living with life-threatening or terminal illness.

Last November, Sally supported the hospice's sell-out fundraising event Strictly Best Foot Forward as one of the judges.

She said: "After hearing the testimonies of people who have accessed the charity, you just realise the impact it is having and how needed it is. At the end of the day, people are losing their loved ones. If you can support a local charity that will help to ease pain or give support to people who might need it, that is a really worthwhile thing to do. Anything we can do to help, we will. We would urge you to support them wherever you can — you never know, you might need them yourselves one day — and they really do need this financial support, so if you can give of your time or money, please do."

She added: "This shop is amazing and about 75 per cent of what is inside is actually brand new so please visit, have a look and spend some money."

Joe Duttine, who plays Tim Metcalfe on Coronation Street and who is dating Sally in real life, said: "It is a really honourable thing to do to come and support a charity that helps people in their hour of need. It is great to see it be successful."

He added: "Tim doesn't know much about dresses."

The couple had scheduled to have a ballroom dancing lesson that afternoon — a Valentine's gift from Sally to Joe.

Visit the store at 20 Union Arcade, in the Mill Gate Shopping Centre, Bury.
