VOLUNTEERS are needed to fill the final few spaces for a charity collection.

Diabetes UK is looking for people to help out with collections at the Tesco Extra store in Clement Attlee Way, Portsmouth, and the store in Quay Street, Fareham.

The Big Collection is a nationwide fundraising event, which takes place on October 4, 5 and 6.

With less than a month to go, the charity is looking for volunteers who can give three hours of their time to collect donations over the weekend.

Jill Steaton, Diabetes UK regional manager for the south east, said: ‘We are delighted people in Portsmouth and Fareham have volunteered for the Big Collection weekend, but we need more volunteers to fill all our shifts.

‘If you are shopping at Tesco that weekend, why not select a shift on the same day.

‘If you can spare a few hours of your weekend we would like to hear from you, so get in touch.’
