We hope you find that treasured something and whatever your purchase, you will be helping us to help others in a time of need. I lost my beloved husband fellow actor Simon MacCorkindale to the cruel disease of cancer in 2010 and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think of him and especially how proud he would be that in his memory, we are able to make a difference to the lives of so many.

Jewellery and Keepsakes
UNIQUE BEAUTY GIFT – by PraiBeauty
This unique limited edition bejewelled jar is special to me because of the Arabian diamanté horse and the friend who donated Cathy Kangas the owner of PRAI BEAUTY PRODUCTS. She is not only a long time friend but special human being who actively protects and fights for all animal rights and causes. 🌟 Read all about Cathy and Prai on her website and the extra bonus after you’ve used your décolletage cream, you have the prettiest collectable limited edition keepsake.
Special Antique Bugle Bead Necklace
This delicate evening necklace of black and grey bugle beads with its antique silver clasp was given to me by a very special friend many, many years ago. She was my nanny growing up and became a greater part of family. She loved Simon and if alive today she would have wanted to be a part of Lasting Life, hence why I decided to donate this precious necklace.
Black Lace Cap Sleeve Jacket
Our pictures don’t show the prettiness of this little over an evening dress top in a size 10. That little bit of sparkle if you’re wearing a bustier but want to cover arms, its light in weight and the beading and lace combination attractively see through.
French Connection Oversized Cardigan
This is a black wool cardigan that can be worn with smart evening as it’s cosy and warm and looks super elegant. It’s made by French Connection, has two front pockets and a 3/4 sleeve with faux fur detailing.
Size extra small although on the generous side.
Basler Lilac 100 percent Cotton Jacket
Basler is a make I hadn’t heard of till mum MacCorkindale came to live with me some years ago. She was a fashion conscious dresser and gave me some lovely items that she had never worn. They are perhaps not a young/trendy look though definitely wearable as a contrast with jeans. Every item is classically made with quality lining and attention to detail and this pretty Lilac jacket so elegant in 100% Cotton. Compare with the Basler site and perhaps buy now (at a much reduced price) then put away til summer.
Unique Evening Over Jacket
This unusual evening jacket was gifted to Lasting Life by my lovely friend Bonnie Lythgoe she and I friends since school days. Bonnie is a talented dancer entrepreneur and producer of theatre and wore this jacket when judging “So You Think You Can Dance” on Australian TV
Black jacket with sky blue faux leather and bead design
Note: Large picture doesn’t show the blue detail in feux leather by the insert does.
3/4 length zip opening
Outer 100% polyester
Lining 97% polyester 3% elastane
Donated by: Bonnie Lythgoe
Charles Dance Double Knit Cashmere Sweater
Charles Dance is a long time friend of mine and was one of Simons too. When I called him about the website and asked if he had something to add to our collection he had no hesitation in offering his shoes from “Game Of Thrones” in their original box along with his signature. They arrived a few days later and are now listed in our auction prizes. At the same time he sent this super double cashmere roll neck sweater its rich in its deep dark fawn colour and will be super soft to wear. Its in an xtra large size and would make a great gift for someone special at Christmas.

This elegant shirt in fine textured cotton is made by super shirt makers, Emmett of London. It’s bright lemon with a salmon pink facing to the cuff, has a 16 inch collar and is a slim fit style. Worn on The Chase and kindly donated by Bradley Walsh.
Red Suede Shoes By Karl Lagerfeld
These gorgeous soft red suede shoes by Karl Lagerfeld have sat in a box from the moment I bought them. They are one of those items you just have to buy at the time but never wore, so decided that someone else should have the opportunity they have a unique kitten heel and the designers name on the outer sole, size: / UK 5 / EU 38
Hand Made Black Leather Riding Boots
These stunning black kid leather dressage boots were custom made for me. They are soft and pliable to wear, have a zip fastening at the back and are in Size 5 / EU 38. NB:These beautiful boots are slim fit and narrow calf.
Black Shoes By Charles Jourdan
I have always loved Jourdan shoes so soft and comfortable to wear, glamorous in look and most importantly their shoes are made in a double A slim fit. I wore these vintage black suede shoes with a red leather inner in several films, so versatile good for day or evening. Size: UK 5.5 / EU 38.5

Cardigan Jacket By (Geral Paris)
I remember when and where we bought this. My late husband Simon and I were spending a few days in Bruges and found a divine Belgique boutique.This dusty pink knitted cardigan in a slightly chunky knit and has extra long sleeves and is a great piece for layering. It wraps rather than fastens and I used a broach to close.
