A HARLEM shake in memory of Nailsea teenager Joe Porter has been postponed until May 12.

The spontaneous dance was due to take place in Somerset Square on April 13, but organisers have had to re-arrange the event.

It will now be held before the charity football match between parents of Long Ashton and Nailsea junior football clubs at Grove Sports Centre, St Mary’s Grove, just before 2pm.

Both events have been organised to raise money for skydive4joe, which was set up in memory of Joe Porter who died of bowel cancer in February.

All the money raised will be split between Bowel Cancer UK and the Teenager Cancer Trust, which supported Joe and his family through his illness.
