A CHARITY set up to provide respite breaks for cancer patients and their families has received a £1,500 boost, thanks to the M&S Foodhall in Longbridge.
Tracey’s Dream was started by Stephen Pugh in memory of his wife Tracey who lost her own cancer battle and had always wanted to buy a caravan so people battling the disease and their families could have free short breaks to get away from the stresses and strains of their treatment.
Last year the charity, run by Stephen and his son Curtis, was able to buy the caravan in Evesham which is far enough for a break but close enough if people need to get back urgently. A bag pack at the M&S saw £500 collected and the £1,000 was raised through in-store donations and raffles organised by the store’s staff.
Stephen, Curtis and the team want to say a big thank you to the shop’s charity champions Andy Oliver and Jo Dunkley, everyone who organised the collections and events and all those who gave so generously.
