Charity shop rings up pounds 2m.
Customers at the Imperial Cancer Research Shop, in Wood Street, joined the party.
Royal Shakespeare Company director Adrian Noble, town mayor Sheila Price and historical figure The Beadle popped in as well.
The shop is now one of the most successful in the charity's chain of 420 outlets.
Manager Trisha MacDonald said the achievement was due to the generosity of customers who had supported the shop since it opened 14 years ago.
She said: "I think we have done so well because we have a very cosmopolitan mix of people donating to and buying from our shop, resulting in an extremely interesting and diverse selection of merchandise.
"We now look forward to making our next million and help the fund's scientists and doctors in their quest to find new answers to cancer."
