Broadcaster Lorraine Keane got some help from Jake Lynch as they launched the 'Buy My Dress' fundraiser.

Now in its eighth year, a host of Irish celebrities including Amy Huberman, Deirdre O'Kane, Sarah Greene, Victoria Smurfit, Ruth Bradley and Kathryn Thomas have donated their dresses.

The Down Syndrome Centre's annual event will take place this year in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Wexford on October 8.

Last year, more than 20,000 dresses were donated. Keane described the day as "guilt-free shopping". See www.downsyndromecentre.ie
