Staff and customers of Co-Op shops across Berkshire have raised over £3,500 for local causes.
The money will go towards five different organisations across the county: Binfield Preschool, National Animal Welfare Trust Berkshire, West Berkshire Mencap, Cancer Research, and FORS-Friends of Robert Sandilands.
Jessica Hughes, Community Investment Manager at Southern Co-op, said: "Every penny has been raised by colleagues and customers who want to help the store's current charity partner.
"A lot of the causes are really small and may simply need help letting people know what they do.
"Then others have been running for years, supporting hundreds of residents in their time of need."
