A new store celebrated its launch and declared dedication to the community with a large donation to charity.
The Tesco Express, in the High Road, Ickenham, invited Sean Carroll from the charity Marie Curie Cancer Care, to cut the ribbon and receive the £500 cheque.
The charity was selected by Tesco as its Charity of the Year, but was chosen by staff at the new Tesco Express because of the vital service its nurses provide in local areas throughout the UK.
Chulan Rathugama, the store manager, said: "We are delighted to be able to support Marie Curie Cancer Care.
"My staff and I are enjoying welcoming our customers into the new store, and we hope that our Tesco will now become a key part of the local community."
The money will be spent directly in the local area and will go towards providing care for patients and emotional support for their families.
The charity provides free, high quality nursing to give terminally ill patients the chance to pass away in their own homes.
