Customers who came to check out Windsor's new-look Body Shop on Saturday ended up contributing to plans for a new children's hospice.
Susie Knowles, community fundraiser for the Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service, cut the ribbon when the newly-refurbished shop in Peascod Street reopened after two weeks.
During the day a raffle was held and goody bags handed out to the first 100 customers in return for a donation.
In the end £169 was raised towards the charity's aim to build a new children's hospice near Maidenhead.
The Body Shop is a long-term supporter of the plan, which is backed by the Express through the Together We Can Build It campaign.
Susie said: "The wonderful staff at the store have been a huge support to our charity, helping as volunteers and raising both funds and awareness. We are so grateful to them for all they do."
