A garden centre in Windsor has donated £2,395 to an East Berkshire charity that provides care for adults battling life-limiting illnesses.
Customers at Squire's Garden Centre, in Maidenhead Road, raised the money for Thames Hospice over the Christmas period.
Squire's held a free Santa's Grotto to boost fundraising for their chosen charity of the year.
Sarah Squire, deputy chairman at Squire's, said it was great to see customers showing their appreciation for the Santa’s Grotto by donating to such a worthy cause.
She added: "Our garden centre staff make their own choice when it comes to which charity to support each year and we certainly agree that Thames Hospice, selected by Squire's Windsor, very much deserved the wonderful support shown by the local community."
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
