SHOPPERS are being urged to think of others less fortunate than themselves in the run-up to Christmas.

The Southern Co-operative, with the support of Pompey legend Linvoy Primus, is calling on Portsmouth residents to support food collections in five of its stores for the Portsmouth Foodbank. Food collections operate all year round in its stores in Eastney Road, Winter Road, Elm Grove, Highland Road and Tangier Road.

The scheme was originally set up by Portsmouth City Council, Faith and Football and The Southern Co-operative.

Linvoy said: ‘This is the third year that the food bank has been running in Portsmouth stores and it goes from strength to strength. Southern Co-operative really believes in the community and it is great that the community comes together like this to offer support.
