Villagers got their first chance to shop in Tesco Express yesterday.
The store in London Road was officially opened by Lyn Buddell, manager of Twyford Age Concern, and Jane Holmes, chief executive of Building for the Future.
They were invited to cut the ribbon alongside new store manager Dawn De Maio and her team.
Dawn also presented each charity with a cheque for £250.
“We were delighted to be able to support these charities as they do fantastic work for those living in the Twyford community," said Dawn.
Lyn said the money would help pay for Sunday lunches, film activities and Wednesday groups for carers and their families.
Jane, said the donation would go towards efforts to raise money for a new disabled children's community centre in the borough.
The store will open daily from 6am to 11pm and employs 15 staff.
A spokesman said the firm had agreed not to sell lottery tickets or install an ATM machine at the store.
