SHOPPERS in the Portsmouth area have the chance to get into the festive mood as the Salvation Army Trading Company launches its Christmas fashion and gift ranges.

Staff and volunteers have been saving their best Christmas partywear, decorations and gifts from donations received throughout the year for the launch on November 17.

The Salvation Army’s Sally Walters said: ‘Those who might be looking for an alternative to high street prices can come along and get their Christmas shop done including presents for their loved ones, an outfit for the party and fillers for that all-important stocking.’

Stores open at 9am.
