Grace McMasters lost a cabinet full of vinyl records after her Tonbridge home was devastated by waist-high flood waters.
Now a generous neighbour in Danvers Road is hoping to undo some of the damage by asking people with records they no longer need to come forward.
Rachel Miller told the Kent Messenger: “She’s a lovely woman who has become a friend, who lost everything in the floods.
“I’m sure people have the odd record lying around in their attic. She’s a massive, massive fan and it would be lovely if they could come forward and offer some support.”
In fact his only visit to the country was a brief stop-off at Glasgow’s Prestwick airport in 1960, while he was on military service.
The closest Grace got to the man was on her 70th birthday, when her family flew her to Gracelands, Elvis’s former home turned museum, for the first time.
Daughter Jacqueline Jones said: “She lost everything in the floods. It’s such an awful thing to happen to everyone on her street. My mother is devastated about the ordeal.
“It’s a lovely suggestion from her neighbour to do this and some help would be appreciated.”
