HUNDREDS of employees from a security firm are offering their time to help charities and organisations across the region.

Community groups are being given the chance to recruit employees from Lockheed Martin UK to support charitable projects.

It’s part of a global campaign which is aiming to achieve a million hours of volunteering by the end of the year.

Whether it is helping to build, dig, paint or plant, teams from the company are there to support local initiatives in whatever way they can, offering both time and expertise.

Stephen Ball, chief executive at Lockheed Martin UK, said: ‘We have a long history of giving back to local communities through volunteering and charity work.

‘Our employees take real pride in offering their time and expertise to be put to good use for a host of different local initiatives.’

Many activities are already lined up – a team from the Havant site is supporting the Great South Run in Portsmouth.

Another team recently planted poppies at the Tower of London.

But there is still a chance to get some extra pairs of hands, for free, to help out at your project or initiative.

If you would like Lockheed Martin volunteers to help out at your organisation, send details about your group and what sort of help you need to
