Have your say

PEOPLE in Portsmouth are being urged to donate clothes, books, toys and household goods as part of a week-long challenge to collect as much stock as possible for the disability charity Scope.

The Dash to Donate appeal runs until Sunday, May 15, and Scope hopes to collect lots of quality items to sell at their shop in London Road, North End.

Members of the public can pick up bags from their local branches of Scope or Safestore at the Pompey Centre, Fratton, who have teamed up with the charity.

Julian Caddick, Safestore manager, said: ‘It’s a great way to support the charity and make a difference to its work with disabled people.

‘We need everyone to get involved to prove just how generous the people of Portsmouth are.’
