Support local charities by helping us collect ‘Tonnes of Tins’

We are excited to be a part of V2 Radio’s ‘Tonnes of Tins’ again. V2 RadioKMFM, Awaaz FM, and Fiesta FM are working together to collect as many food tins as they can across Hampshire, Sussex and Kent to donate to local foodbanks, communities, and charities, like UKHarvest! Last year V2 Radio collected an impressive 4.8 tonnes, but this year they are looking to beat this number in the 6 weeks of collections until Friday 11th August. More and more people and charities are struggling now more than ever so, every tin counts!


How does my donation help?

Every donation is added up to a grand total and distributed between local foodbanks, communities, and charities, including UKHarvest.

Our mission is to prevent food waste and food insecurity by enriching and educating our communities. We regularly support a network of over 350 local charities with quality surplus rescued food to benefit their communities.

How can I get involved?

Donation Points are placed across the county at supermarkets & libraries to make it super easy for you to help support local foodbanks & charities. Simply pop your tins into the donation points & V2 Radio will do the rest! For a full list of donation point locations please click here or view the map.


Order an online food shop via a supermarket and have it delivered to the V2 Radio studios. Please ensure that the delivery is booked during office hours, so that someone will be there to receive the order!

Address: V2 Radio, Downlands House, Drayton Lane, Chichester, PO20 1EL


If you can't get to one of our donation points or do an online shop, but you'd still like to support the appeal, you can do so by donating to V2 Radio’s Just Giving page. They’ll use the money to purchase the tins on your behalf and add them to the tonnes of tins donated. Donate here.
