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.

Tesco customers

Tesco customers. through the scheme, called ‘Bags of Help’, grants of £8,000, £10,000 and £12,000 will be awarded to charities and groups across the UK for spending on environmental improvement projects. Tesco customers will receive a token at the till to vote for the local project they think most deserves the bumper £12,000 grant, and have until 6 March to make their vote count. Over 1000 community projects will benefit from Tesco’s scheme.

A total of £11.5m raised from the sale of Tesco bags in the UK since October 2015 will be donated through Bags of Help, which is expected to be one of the biggest environmental improvement drives the UK has ever seen.

Over a thousand initiatives directly chosen by local people will get the green light thanks to the scheme including brand new pocket parks, sports facilities, woodland walks and community gardens. Bags of Help will be administered by UK environmental improvement charity Groundwork.

Matt Davies, Tesco UK and ROI chief executive said: “We want to serve Britain’s shoppers a little better every day, and everything we do at Tesco is informed by what our customers tell us.

“That’s why we wanted to give our customers the chance to choose the environmental projects they most want to benefit from the money raised through the bag charge.

“Our customers will help us make sure the money raised through the charge goes to make the biggest difference to local communities up and down the country.”

The projects that will be voted on by Tesco customers were nominated by local people and community groups, and whittled down to three for each area by special teams made up of Tesco colleagues from local stores.

Customers can make their choice in store and join the conversation on twitter using #BagsOfHelp.

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.
