A NAILSEA supermarket is helping to raise money for the skydive4joe appeal.
Joe Porter, aged 16, lost his battle against bowel cancer last month and his friends and family are taking part in a sky dive later this year in his memory and to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK and the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Skydive4joe is one of three charities Waitrose customers can choose to support with the tokens they collect during their shop and at the end of March £1,000 will be split between the three causes.
Staff have also organised charity bag packing days in aid of skydive4joe from March 28-30 and students from Nailsea School have been invited to take part in the scheme to raise money for the appeal.
Waitrose manager, James Baldry, said: “It’s really inspiring how the community has come together in support of the appeal.

“The community matters team has initiated these charity fundraising ideas and we hope customers really get behind it.”
Students interested in taking part in the bag packing weekend need to complete a slip stating the days and times they are available, which can be handed into the school or Waitrose by Friday.
