About the shop
Saturday, February 14, 2009
The acclaimed guitarist Gordon Giltrap was in town to celebrate the opening of a new Tracy Sollis Leukaemia Trust shop in Evesham.
The guitarist met Tracy and helped raise funds with her before the 15-year-old lost her battle with Leukaemia in February 1995 and is a Patron of the charity.
Ever since Tracy passed away, her mother Sue has raised tens of thousands of pounds for research into Leukaemia. She eventually set up a trust and opened a second hand shop in the Library Arcade and now because of its success she has moved to premises opposite.
The Original Tracy Sollis Leukaemia Trust Evesham charity shop, was situated next to Evesham Library and crammed with donated goods to help raise cash for the latest appeal - To raise enough money to buy intravenous pumps for administering Chemotherapy drugs and blood products to patients undergoing treatment. These pumps will be at Worcester Hospital, cost around £3,000 each and 21 are needed.
The Trust's shop, in Evesham's Library Arcade continued to do well, thanks to its volunteers and has now moved to a larger shop at Unit 5
