This year's Braywick Heath Nurseries' Christmas fair offered gift ideas ranging from hanging baskets and table decorations to wreaths and Christmas trees.
The fair which was held on Saturday last week saw the centre take a record-breaking amount of sales which were up by 50 per cent from last year.
Royal Borough mayor Cllr Colin Rayner also attended to officially launch new work tables which have been bought with donations from the public.
Robin Pemberton, chairman of Braywick Heath, said: “We understand that tough economic times have forced many people to tighten their purse strings. Our aim was to deliver a fantastic fun day out for all the family at a minimal cost."
Braywick Heath is a working nursery that offers employment and training to people with disabilities or in need of support.
In 2007 the nursery was crowned as best social enterprise in Berkshire and the charity celebrated its 15th anniversary, having helped more than 1,000 people to enter a working environment and gain confidence.
Some of these people have gone on to full employment while others have chosen to continue working for the nursery.
