Packaging firm delivers hope to refugees

The season of good will shows no sign of ending in the village as A&A Packaging have donated empty boxes to the Don’t Hate, Donate campaign.

Their donation will make a huge difference as the boxes have been filled with vital supplies that will be given to people who have escaped Aleppo and other war-ravaged parts of the country. The firm, located on westfield industrial estate, decided to help after being contacted out of the blue by a campaigner a few days before Christmas.

The items in boxes have all been donated by Well-Wishers with collections taking place between 10am and 9pm every Wednesday and Sunday at Venture Tower, Fratton Road, Portsmouth.

Chantelle Burton, Don’t Hate, Donate trustee, thanked A&A for its generosity and hopes other firms around East Hampshire, Havant and Winchester districts will copy their lead.

For details and to donate visit Venture Tower on Wednesdays and Saturdays or look for the campaign on Facebook and Twitter.

Fulfil The Wish Charity

Welcome to Fulfil The Wish

Fulfil The Wish


Fulfil The Wish is a registered charity, which was founded in 2000 by Mary Appleton, a registered nurse, to provide activity and sightseeing holidays for children and young people with disabilities and complex health needs.

Fulfil The Wish volunteers have the ability and the experience to help people with even severe disabilities – and their families – to enjoy a holiday which will live long in their memories.

Our holidays are about inclusion.

We have professional assistance and practical support on each holiday.

The holiday is planned around the needs of the disabled children.

Our assistance is also available to parents with disabilities who may have experienced difficulties when trying to holiday as a family, or who may need more support than would normally be available.

All our holidays and activities are family-based. They offer opportunities for children and their families to enjoy a wide range of experiences which others may take for granted.

Our holidays, days out and activities also offer an opportunity to make new friends and experience the company of people from across the UK. Over the years, many of the children and families who have been on our holidays have kept in contact and remain good friends to this day.

To donate to us:

Text ‘NEEN18‘ plus either £1, £2, £3, £4, £5 or £10 to 70070 to donate that amount to Fulfil the Wish via Just Giving. For example, text:

‘NEEN18 £10′ to 70070.

to donate £10. Fulfil the Wish will receive every penny of your donation.

Guide Dogs for the Blind


‘Guide Dogs for the Blind’ is a Charity that supports blind and partially sighted people.’

Every hour, another person in the UK goes blind. When someone loses their sight, Guide Dogs for the Blind are there to make sure they don’t lose their freedom as well. Guide Dogs provides a range of mobility services and works to break down barriers so that people who are blind or partially sighted can get out and about on their own terms. We will not rest until people who are blind or partially sighted can enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else.

The Charity’s Mission…


Guide Dogs for the Blind will not rest until people who are blind and partially sighted can enjoy the same freedom of movement as everyone else.


Did you know?


It costs around £47 million to run the guide dogs service every year!

It costs £50.000 to raise a puppy from birth to retirement!!


Every minute of every day, the Guide Dogs Charity spends £100 making independence possible for blind and partially sighted people.

In these tough economic times F I S H & Lee Community Church want to help those in need in the local community of Gosport/Lee with boxes of FREE food on a regular basis


F I S H (Food information Support Hope) has been feeding local families for 3 years. They are a team of 6 headed up by Elizabeth Young. Four days a week food is picked up from 2 local supermarkets, packed into boxes and delivered to families living in the Lee and Gosport areas. Currently there are approx 210 addresses on the list, ranging from single people to families, the elderly and people with special needs. F I S H always needs more donations of food, particularly tins, jars and packets, and as the need increases, more volunteers to help collect the food and deliver. Please email Elizabeth at if you know a family in need or are able to help serve in this ministry.
