Need of list Alphabetical (A-Z) in Laravel

Whenever we work on invoice or inventory applications in Laravel, Sometimes we need to show the sub-items or subcategories under the alphabet for better alignment of invoices.

We created a model Test Table1, using this model we got all the data from the table.
