SAILORS have picked up paint rollers to help a children’s charity.

A team from the Victory Squadron at Fareham Royal Navy base HMS Collingwood have pitched in to brighten up the rooms of youth support charity Kids.

The navy personnel have redecorated the Fareham centre’s reception area in bright colours.

Kids assistant administrator Abigail Limburn-Green said: ‘We are very happy to be supported by HMS Collingwood in this project.

‘It brings the two organisations together and is a real show of community spirit.

‘There have been many compliments from parents, staff, visitors and the little ones themselves on the reception’s new look.’

Victory Squadron training officer Lieutenant Samira Pashneh-Tala said the sailors were thrilled to be able to help the charity.

Lt Pashneh-Tala said: ‘We wanted to provide our support to Kids as we have the resources and we are part of the same community so it’s great to assist a local project.

‘It gives some of the trainees the chance to be interactive.’
