The donations will go to Advance’s Hampshire Women’s Centre which provides support to women and their children in the local community and wider area.
Advance’s Hampshire Coordinator, Lied, said:
Some 50 to 60 Hampshire women use the centre and demand is growing. The combined efforts of ASDA, local shoppers and Advance filled a mega trolley with bagloads of donations – enough to supply those who rely on the Hampshire Women’s Centre for around a year, said Lied.
Danielle Dean, Community Champion Asda Portsmouth, explained:
Charlotte, Service Manager at Advance’s Hampshire Centre, added:
“A fair number of younger women made donations, which goes to show how the world is changing and the younger generation is realising the importance of the work that charities like Advance do.”
