Staff at Norwich's John Lewis store have raised £5,800 for the child bereavement charity Nelson's Journey.
Over the past year, employees have taken part in a variety of fundraising activities to support the Norfolk-based charity.
They provided support by volunteering at events including art and craft sessions held at the charity's 'Smiles House'. Meanwhile, staff member Katie O'Reilly worked a day-a-week at the charity over a six-month period.
Money raised will go towards helping the organisation provide therapeutic services.
Nelson's Journey offers support for children and young people aged up to 18 who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life.
