A SHOPPING trolley that has been pushed around 50 towns and cities around the UK to raise money for charity is set to return to Salisbury on Friday.

Phil the Trolley left Salisbury on April 8 to raise funds for and awareness of the Trussell Trust’s work to stop food poverty.

Throughout the five-week tour, Phil has been pushed by many different people including schoolchildren, former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, Alex Salmond and the captain of Millwall FC, Paul Robinson.

Salisbury MP John Glen is lending his support to the campaign and is set to welcome the trolley when it arrives back in Salisbury.

Chris Mould, from the Trussell Trust, said: “The trolley push is a timely reminder to politicians and the public that people right across the UK are in crisis.

“The support we have had from every local community during the course of the last five weeks has been inspiring. The public understanding of the problem of hunger in the UK is growing all the time.

"There’s still time to donate to the campaign, which will help with the rise in the number of people needing emergency food.”
