Charity shop’s motto of ‘Spend here, save lives out there’

 Published on: 2nd May 2019   |   By: News Desk   |   Category: Uncategorized

A St Albans gift shop, which is lives by the motto ‘Spend here, save lives out there’ has raised £180,000 in the fight against cancer since its opening. 

Raindrops on Roses is run by volunteers and donates 100 per cent of its profits to a wide range of causes including cancer charities and specialist cancer hospitals.

In March, the shop donated £29,872 to Action Against Cancer and a total £72,971 has so far been donated to the charity. 

The shop with a difference was founded by Alison Bainbridge who came up with the idea of using a local charity shop which offers local craftspeople a space to sell their products.

“This shop is about friendship and genuine community and doing something good for St Albans,” says Alison. 

Alison’s company ABA Market Research funded the start-up costs of the shop and continues to support it to this day. 

The shop which can be found on St Albans High Street, sells a range of stylish, distinctive products which feature local creative talent. 

Open seven days a week why not help the shop in its combat against cancer.
