SAILORS brushed up on their volunteering skills by helping out at Portsmouth Shopmobility.

The group spent four days painting a fence, reception area and office at the centre in Arundel Street, Landport, Portsmouth, during Volunteers Week.

Nikki Blackburn, 25, works as a volunteer at the centre, which provides scooters and other equipment to help people with mobility problems. She said: ‘They painted a fence and the reception area but they ended up going ahead of schedule so they painted the office as well. ‘They’re absolutely brilliant. I can’t describe how amazing they are. We have had customers say what a difference the work has made, and they’ve come out and spoken to customers with us.’
