Solihull charity store celebrates funding more than 300 lifesaving missions

The Children’s Air Ambulance (TCAA) charity store in Solihull is celebrating funding more than 300 lifesaving missions for critically ill babies and children across the UK.

The charity boutique store opened its doors on 12 January 2013 and is situated near the famous Touchwood Shopping Centre in Solihull. Over the past eleven years the charity store has generated £1,302,008.23, incredibly funding more than 300 lifesaving missions – enabling the charity to continue saving young lives across the UK.

The Children’s Air Ambulance is a charity changing the face of paediatric and neonatal care through the high-speed transfer of critically ill babies and children – flying them from one hospital to another for specialist care via the clinically designed helicopters, which provide a flying intensive care unit for babies and children.

The store has also received 21,261 bags of donated goods but continues to require support from the local community with further donations of new and preloved items, as these provide vital income for the charity.

Store Manager Luke Evans said: “We would like to thank everyone in the local community for their support over the past eleven years. Without this amazing support the charity wouldn’t be able to continue to save the lives of critically ill babies and children across the UK.”

“We still rely on the local community’s support with donations of pre-loved items, as these provide vital funds for the children’s charity,” he added.
