Miss Fernandes, who also provided food of her own to the cause, said: ‘It was great to be able to lend a hand with the collection in the Fareham store, and I congratulate Steve, Ashley and all the staff on their efforts to support this worldwide campaign.

‘It is a huge tribute to the generosity of people locally and across the country that so many meals have been provided as a result of these donations.’

Tesco held the collection at its stores nationwide, with millions of meals donated.
