Vintage fair to honour Rebecca
The manager of a Cancer Research store in Stamford is hosting a fund raising event in July in the name of a close friend who is terminally ill.
Deborah Dean, the manager of Cancer Research UK Stamford St Pauls Street, said her friend Rebecca Readshaw, 37, had stage four ovarian cancer.
"I am hosting a fair in her name, Rebecca's Vintage Fair," said Deborah.
"We want to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK."
Deborah said Rebecca, who was born in Peterborough but now lives in London, was currently undergoing a clinical trial.
"Without the charity, these trials simply would not be possible," she said, adding that Rebecca was "coping" considering the difficult circumstances.
The fair is taking place at Stamford Arts Centre on July 22 and will be open to the public from 11am until 4pm.
"We will have lots of vintage stalls, the Cancer Research health messaging team will be present and a volunteer fundraising team will be holding a raffle and selling cakes and refreshments," said Deborah.
"Entrance will be £2 and of course most of the car parks offer free parking on a Sunday in Stamford."
She said items on sale would include vintage clothing, antiques and home ware.
"We're also hoping to get some beauticians together to offer vintage lashes and hair styles," she said.
Anyone who would like a stall, to donate or more information can e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01780-766548.
