A Clevedon supermarket has donated cash to a charity supporting people with terminal illness.

Sainsbury’s Local in Hill Road gave a £100 cheque to Marie Curie’s Clevedon and Nailsea fundraising group thanks to the store’s local charity of the year scheme.

The charity was chosen by staff and customers last year with activities including a Christmas raffle and card sales held to collect the total.

Fundraising group treasurer Alison Stott said: “We have been amazed at the support we have received at the store.

“The staff and customers have been fantastic and we’d like to thank everyone at Sainsbury’s in Clevedon for their support over the past few months.

“We’re extremely grateful for all the donations and the opportunity to raise the public’s awareness of Marie Curie.”

The store will be supporting Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal in March.
