BRING extra sparkle to a hospice and donate Christmas decorations.

People in Portsmouth are being asked to share some goodwill and donate items to The Rowans Hospice.

The annual Access Self Storage Christmas appeal, which runs across the UK, is calling for businesses and residents to give decorations such as trees, new lights, baubles, bells or stockings to the charity to allow them to share some festive fun.

A drop-off point has been created in Herbert Street, Landport.

Helen McPhall, manager of Access Self Storage in Portsmouth, said: ‘All the donations will be sorted and delivered to The Rowans Hospice where they will be used to bring some Christmas magic to those who need it most.’
