Jilted bride who travelled the world is to sell her wedding dress – and it’s all for a good cause
A bride who travelled the world after her big day was called off is selling her wedding dress to raise funds for the families of two murdered British backpackers.
Katy Colins, 31, a former Manchester Airport press officer, has put her unworn gown up for sale on eBay to raise cash for the families of fellow travellers Mia Ayliffe-Chung and Tom Jackson.
Mia, 21, from Buxton, died after being stabbed in a knife attack in an Australian hostel and Tom, 30, from Congleton, Cheshire, died a hero trying to save her.
Traveller Katy says she wanted to do something to support the grieving families and decided to sell off the dress she’s been keeping hold of for the last three years.
The ivory fishtail wedding dress has been auctioned on eBay under the heading ‘Jilted wedding dress seeks happy-ever-after’.
Writing on her travel blog , she wrote: “Trying on wedding dresses and realising that you’ve found ‘the one’ is pretty indescribable.
