Tashi Marley is making ‘Positive Pops’ her summer mission to get as many shops in Ely to support her by having a stand of the sweet treats in their shop.

“It’s a lot of work but I’m hoping the results will be a big help to the charities I want to help,” Tashi said.

The 13-year-old, who is a student at Witchford Village College, has already had retail giant John Lewis confirm a stand in their Cambridge store, while closer to home, the pops are selling well in Scampers Natural Pet Store, in Soham.

Positive Pops are homemade lollipops that are blue in colour.

Tashi explained: “I wanted to do a summer pledge to raise much needed supplies for local charities.

“I have been running Tashis Treats for a while now - I make sweet treats or products and have a pop up stand at my school and some businesses - these have been for Children in Need, Red Nose Day and many more national charities.

“I made badges and bracelets for the Manchester fund for the Red Cross too,

“My summer holiday goal is to get these homemade lollipop stands in as many shops in Ely as possible.

“Every bit of the money raised will go to local charities starting with Street Vet who help homeless people’s dogs in our area.

“Any business that is interested in Ely, I will deliver it to them and refill when needed and for more information they can get in touch at Positivepops@yahoo.com.”
