Helping out the locals at Christmas time

17 Port and Maritime Regiment RLC has been doing its bit to give a little back to those less fortunate this Christmas time.

Since the 25 Nov, members of 53 Sqn have been taking part in the โ€œ12 Charities of Christmasโ€ campaign, which has involved helping out various local charities in and around Southampton.

Events have included doing odd jobs around Ashlett Dale Rest Home, sorting through toy donations at TEDS Toys, caring for animals at Blue Acre Horse rescue, collecting and sorting food at Southampton City Mission food bank.

The final event saw soldiers cooking and serving lunch to a group of elderly people at St Mark’s Church.
