Charity shops compete to win best Christmas window display

Thames Hospice shop's in the Royal Borough and beyond have been fighting it out to win the best Christmas window display.

The Windsor shops in Peascod Street and Dedworth Road as well as the shop in Maidenhead High Street were decked out with decorations by staff earlier this month

Rebecca Smith who works at the Peascod Street store said: "It is a little bit of friendly competition to promote fundraising for the hospice."

The Peascod Street shop, which specialises in retro items, decorated the window in old-fashioned sledges which sold almost straight away as well as a customised vintage Father Christmas costume.

The competition is a way for the shops to promote the Thames Hospice Santa Dash being held on Sunday in Bracknell.

In total 13 shops took part, including in Woodley and Crowthorne, with the Binfield shop being crowned the winner.
