John Barrowman Donates Items to Raise Funds for Dogs Trust

Literally giving the shirt off his back for a paws cause, Torchwood star John Barrowman– who helped Dogs Trust’s charity shop in Cowbridge, Wales open their doors back in September 2011– has opened his closet to raise funds for the Welsh branch of the dog welfare organization. (Watch a video of the actor at the store’s grand opening.)

“It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that two of my favourite things are shopping and supporting Dogs Trust.” the star stated on his official web site. “After a recent spring-cleaning, I donated lots of stuff to the new Cowbridge shop, including posters, watches and boxes of clothing. I hope you’ll pay a visit and share in my favourite things.”

John Barrowman’s admirers in the area can gild their wardrobe with items once worn by the future cast member of the ABC series pilot Gilded Lilys by stopping by the store at 62 Eastgate in Cowbridge on March 31st at 9:30 A.M.

Select items may also be available on the Dogs Trust eBay shop at a future date.
