A fundraisER for the armed forces and their families raised £1,422.

The event was in aid of SSAFA, which was formerly known as the Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmens Families Association.

It was organised by volunteer Ove Jonassen, 70, and three soldiers, and was held at the Tesco Extra store, in Solent Road, Havant.

He said: ‘I sold SSAFA merchandise, which included teddies, keyrings and T-shirts, while others went round collecting money.’
