A SUPERMARKET is celebrating a new charity partnership.
The Joseph Salmon Trust has been unveiled as the local charity partner of Sainsbury’s Market Street.
Over the next 12 months the charity will benefit from money donated through fundraising as well as time given by Sainsbury’s staff as volunteers.

It was set up by Rachael and Neil Salmon, who lost their three-year-old son Joseph to pneumonia in 2005.
The charity was chosen to receive the store’s support after nominations poured in from customers keen to support the local good cause.
Neil said: “We’re really excited to be partnering with Sainsbury’s and have already been getting our heads together to think of ways to raise money to help our charity to make a difference to people living in and around Huddersfield.”
The store plans to launch the partnership with fundraising activities to designed to coincide with the World Cup.
Colin Meah, store manager, said: “The Joseph Salmon Trust is such a worthy cause and we’re pleased and proud to be supporting it over the next 12 months. We’re calling on all our customers to join us staff in reaching our fundraising target.”
