Have your say

Shoppers are being thanked by a charity for their generosity after three collections raised hundreds of pounds.

Volunteers from the Fareham and District branch of Parkinson’s UK spent two days collecting at Tesco’s in Quay Street, Fareham.

The collections on September 4-5 raised £355.

Volunteers also spent the day on September 6 collecting cash at Sainsbury’s in Broadcut, Fareham. This collection raised £384.

Alan Causer, chairman, said: ‘Parkinson’s UK, and in particular, the Fareham and District branch wish to thank Tesco and Sainsbury’s for allowing us to hold the fundraising days.

‘We also wish to thank the stores’ customers for their generosity in helping us raise such a great sum, which will be put towards trying to find a cure for Parkinson’s disease.

‘Without the support of such organisations and the generosity of their customers, fundraising would be that much more difficult.’
