TESCO will open a new shop in Gosport this week with a charity donation.

The Tesco Express will open on Forton Road, where Madeline’s pub used to stand.

It will be officially opened at 10.30am on Friday.

To mark the occasion, Tesco is donating £500 to the nearby Accommodation Resource Centre, a service for 16-25 year olds run by homeless organisation Two Saints.

The shop will be open from 6am until 11pm, seven days a week.

Proposals were sent to Gosport Borough Council’s planning department to make way for the new shop in January this year.

The plans were later approved.
