Officers at HMS Collingwood in Fareham joined other military establishments to raise money for two cancer charities as part of the nationwide Military vs Cancer 2018 campaign.

AB Calum Salmon said: ‘We’re more than happy to do this and it’s a good spot here outside the Base store since everyone has to pay by cash and they’ve lots of change to give us.
