City loses a frigate in base-porting shake-up

Have your say

POMPEY legends Linvoy Primus and Mick Mellows will walk across the city tomorrow to raise money for charity.

The football stars are doing the trek to generate cash for the Faith and Football Community Leagues and members of the public are invited to join the pair for the journey.

There are 60 leagues throughout Portsmouth, Birmingham and Plymouth which are designed to promote a healthy lifestyle in an environment where young people are encouraged by role models to build family relationships and self-confidence.

Southern Co-operative has adopted the charity and will help out with volunteering and financial matters, and has organised this event to celebrate.

The walk starts at the Co-op Club, Fratton, at 10am and will visit Co-ops in New Road, Tangier Road, Francis Avenue, Winter Road, Eastney Road, Highland Road, Elm Grove, St James’ Road, Isambard Road and Fratton Road before heading back to the Co-op club in Fratton.

There will also be a stop-off at Guildhall Walk between 2.30pm and 3.30pm depending on the speed of the walkers.

Ask at your local Co-op for more details.
