Amy Winehouse’s Dress Stolen; Was To Be Auctioned For Foundation

By Spear's

Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse spoke to Spear’s earlier this year about the work of the Amy Winehouse Foundation in helping charities which support young people

Amy Winehouse’s wedding dress has been stolen from her house in Camden, according to the Daily Mail. The dress, estimated at £100,000, was going to be sold to benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, set up by her family after her death in July 2012.

Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse spoke to Spear’s earlier this year about the work of the Amy Winehouse Foundation in helping charities which support young people:

‘We aim to give away £500,000 this year to a number of causes: hospices for children, drugs education in schools, night shelters for young people like Pilion Trust, and of course New Horizon Youth Centre.

‘It wasn’t difficult choosing to support New Horizon. There are 3,000 young people living rough on the streets of London, only you don’t see them because they slip between the cracks. A few years ago, I would have said that kids are homeless because they’re drug addicts or alcoholics, or in gangs. Actually, often they become homeless because they’re trying to escape gangs, and a lot of them come from very abusive homes. Coming from a close family, it makes me so emotional thinking of that.’
