A new convenience store has celebrated its launch with a donation to Windsor's hospice.
Ros White, from the hospice in Hatch Lane, was the guest of honour when the new Tesco Express store opened in Clarence Road on Friday.
Ros, who is director of retail for Thames Hospicecare, which runs the hospice, cut the ribbon to declare the new store officially open.
Store manager Ahmed Ziyad and his team presented Ros with a cheque for £500.
Thames Hospicecare provides palliative care for adults with cancer and other life-limiting illnesses but relies on donations for its survival.
Tesco Express store manager Ahmed said: “We were delighted to be able to support the hospice as it does such fantastic work for those living in the Windsor community."
The new Tesco Express' opening hours will be seven days a week from 6am until 11pm. Parking is also available to customers at the store, which is on the site of the old Three Elms pub.
