Eva May Foundation's new premises

Glenys Davis (in purple), with her trusted band of volunteers, is thrilled with the new location for the Eva May Op Shop.

Glenys Davis’ Eva May Foundation ‘Garage Sale’ business, formerly at 96 Melbourne Street, Mulwala, has moved to new premises at 159 Melbourne Street, Mulwala, between Tunzafun and the museum.

The foundation had been operating for the past six years from a house opposite the business strip in Mulwala.

Glenys does not employ staff and the business is operated entirely by around ten volunteers who work on a roster system, six days a week.

Glenys and her volunteers are currently working hard to clean up and refurbish the new site, the old aRiver Revival Sports Massage premises.

The business will reopen in early August as the Eva May Op Shop selling items such as jewellery, books, clothing, kitchenware, furniture and toys.

Glenys was looking around for new premises and was pleasantly surprised when the Mulwala Progress Association advised her the building was up for lease and she jumped at the opportunity to move her business to these bigger premises.

The association has provided advice and some financial support to help refurbish the interior of the new building.

Mulwala Progress Association President Robert Purtle said the association was proud of Glenys for all the hard work she does for worthy causes.

“We are looking forward to her business reopening and continuing the good work,” he said.

Most of the funds raised at the old garage sale shop went to community projects in Myanmar, one of the poorest countries in the world.

The Eva May Foundation has funded programs such as education, medical, housing, fresh water, fencing and some general family support.

Glenys is looking forward to the ongoing support of the community in Mulwala and Yarrawonga and is keen for new people to help out by donating goods.

She invites people to come and have a look at the Op Shop when it opens in early August and say hello to her and the volunteers.
