NICKY Roberts had always dreamt of doing a trolley dash – now her quickfire shopping has helped those in need.

She zoomed around Sainsbury’s, collecting more than £500 worth of groceries for the Fareham and Gosport Basics Bank in just five minutes.

The trolley dash had been won by Bob Poole, who is in his 90s, as a prize for completing a word puzzle in magazine Take A Break.

He passed the prize to Grace Roberts, a parishioner at Holy Trinity Church, who passed it on to her church, asking that the groceries should go to the Basics bank.

Nicky managed to gather £511 of goods for the food bank and she was given a bonus of £250 which was donated to Holy Trinity’s High Time project to restore the clock and tower.

Nicky said: ‘It was really good fun and people were standing at the end of aisles helping me to get the right things.

‘I’ve also started volunteering at 
Fareham and Gosport Basics Bank once a week.’
