Blythe House Hospice took centre stage at the opening of a new B&M store in Whaley Bridge.
Representatives from the Chapel-en-le-Frith hospice joined High Peak Mayor Coun Linda Grooby at Saturday morning’s official launch.
The Buxton Road store - the bargain retailer’s first to open in the High Peak - has created more than 45 jobs.

Staff nominated the hospice for some VIP treatment in recognition of the work they do in the community, providing care for people affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, as well as supporting those who are overcoming bereavement. The charity was also awarded £250 worth of B&M vouchers.
Store manager Kelly Rudyard said: “The team from Blythe House Hospice really stood out for us as they go the extra mile for the local community.
"We wanted to give them some VIP treatment as a thank-you for all the hard work they do.”
