Food store staff and customers donated hundreds of pounds to give extra support to elderly people.
The money was raised at the Anglia Co-operative store in the Burghley Centre, Bourne, and a cheque for £2,000 was handed to the Butterfield Centre on Tuesday last week.
Money collected in store was added to funding from the Anglia Co-operative Community Fund.
It will be used to provide extra treats and improve the quality of life of the scores of elderly people in Bourne and surrounding area who use the services provided by the North Road centre.
Butterfield Centre manager Debbie Hague said: “We didn’t expect them to raise this much money. We’re over the moon. It’s a fantastic effort; they’re putting in so much to raise money for us.”
Staff at the store chose to support the Butterfield Centre as their cause for the year.
