In the 25 years it has been in Oakham, the Cancer Research UK shop has raised an amazing £2.7 million for the charity’s work.
This week the Market Place store marked the milestone with a small celebration for staff and volunteers.
For customers there were cakes and sweets and 25 per cent off all goods.
Shop manager Wendy Henderson said: “We are very proud of what we have achieved. For the size of the shop it’s amazing. We get a lot of support from the people of Oakham. Local businesses and market traders donate prizes for raffles and bring in items for sale. ”
