MP Theresa May gave her support to a new shop on the High Street on Saturday.
Alzheimers Dementia Support (ADS) welcomed the Home Secretary to the new charity shop which will raise money for support services for people with dementia and their carers in Maidenhead, Windsor and Slough.
Chairman David Jannetta was there to welcome her and said: "Theresa mentioned the fact that she liked the clear simplicity of the shop's signage - especially the three coloured circles in the ADS logo as these were, in her opinion, very appropriate in an Olympic year."
He added that the MP had recognised that much work had been done to create what a pleasurable shopping environment.
He added: "In her speech to the crowd, Theresa also said she understood and supported the need for charity activity in the local area as all monies raised by organisations such as Alzheimers Dementia Support would provide vital services and support to those in need within our community."
The tills started ringing on opening day but the shop still needs more stock donations.The public are urged to support the shop and drop in any donations.
