Waitrose has raised £670 for Parkinson’s UK.

The supermarket in Nailsea supported the charity with its green tokens system, where shoppers select which cause to back after a trip to the store.

The cheque was handed over at a comfort day, where various therapies are held to help Parkinson’s sufferers and their carers. The comfort days are held three times a year at Scotch Horn Leisure Centre.

The North West Somerset branch of the Parkinson’s UK meets at 10.30am on the second Saturday of the month at St Francis Church Hall.
