A gift shop in St Albans run by volunteers has raised £180,000 to combat cancer since it opened.
Raindrops on Roses, opposite the Clock Tower, sells a range of brand new items but gives all its profits to charity. Their most recent donation was over £29,000 for Action Against Cancer which was raised through their shop sales.
The funds will go to a breast cancer project that works to understand secondary tumours.
Hilary Craft, OBE and founder of Action Against Cancer, said: “Everyone at Action Against Cancer is thrilled that Raindrops on Roses provide such generous support for our research into better diagnostics and treatments.
“The shop is currently supporting our project to try and prevent secondary tumours for breast cancer patients.
