A busy day centre has been transformed by the colour purple.
Volunteers spent Thursday, September 4 at Old Windsor Day Centre in Straight Road covering the tired looking magnolia walls with bright purple paint.
Centre services manager Lorraine Hillis said: "It has made a tremendous difference to the centre, making it bright for the clients.
"We are so grateful to the team whose members interacted with our clients as they painted the dining and bathroom areas.
"It is so much brighter and cheerier now."
The volunteers were from the IRI Worldwide market analysis company in Bracknell.
The Age Concern Slough and Berkshire East Old Windsor Day Centre opens three days a week; on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
It offers older villagers lunch and activities ranging from bowls and line dancing to tai chi.
Monthly Sunday lunches have recently been introduced.
