The Message Board

I’d just like to give another plug for a great resource for fans:

The Shirley Bassey Message Board

It’s been a little quiet, but I’m glad to see more activity now.

The Message Board has been around for years, and is a forum for information and debate.

#Through the good times and the bad times#

I used it in the past, but have been busy with this little blog (plus I have lost my password!)

It runs perfectly in harmony with the blog, and in no way are we competitors. The moderator is a friend, a nice guy, and a dedicated superfan.

There’s a permanent link on the left column.

#Keep the music playing!#

DSB’s shoes make Sense

Hi,

I am contacting you from Sense – the national deafblind charity.

Dame Shirley Bassey has very kindly donated some signed shoes to us for a celebrity auction and I was hoping you could include on your website.

Best wishes, Vanessa

A pair of signed shoes donated by Dame Shirley Bassey.  They are made from silver leather, and are from OFFICE.  They are signed on the inside but as the lining is dark and the pen was black the autograph doesn’t show up in the photo.

PRESS RELEASE

Ever fancied slipping on a pair of Dame Shirley’s sparkly stilettos? And swooning when you realise she’s signed them?

Or do you have a lust for the celebrity look but don’t quite have the wallet-power to match?

We all know it makes sense to shop at charity shops. So imagine if there was a charity shop racked out with A-list celebrity designer clobber from Hollywood’s finest, Hogwarts Alumni, Chelsea Players, three Dames and a sprinkling of chart topping divas.

Sashay forward national deafblind charity Sense with a surprise pop-up celebrity charity boutique from March 4th -7th.

Jane Arnell from Sense says: “When we asked show-business’ finest to give us the clothes off their backs – they literally did. Their clothes will become a charity auction with a difference. All the celeb items will be displayed in store, so you can check out the gear for yourself”
