Culdrose trainees brighten up local charity building

Published: 21 May 2014

A working party of Naval Trainees from Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose has made all the difference to a Helston based charity inCornwall. 

Lizard C.H.I.L.D. (Community Help Improving Learning & Development) Trust has been operating for the past 14 years and is based in the grounds ofSt.MichaelsSchoolin Helston. 

The ethos of the charity is to enhance the development of children primarily under school age by working with parents to understand and provide for the needs of the children through community groups. At present there are over 110 families using the Lizard C.H.I.L.D. facilities in Helston each week. 

Providing a much needed helping hand the group of Sailors from RNAS Culdrose, currently under training at the West Cornwall base, arrived with a paintbrush in one hand and a pot of paint in the other, and proceeded to lift the dull pencilled fence to bright primary colours reflecting the bright and cheerful internal atmosphere that exudes from the building. 

“Parents have been commenting on how much brighter it all looks and the children are reciting all the different colours of the paints”, said Wendy O’Sullivan, manager at Lizard C.H.I.L.D. Trust in Helston. “We are very grateful to the personnel from Culdrose and the hard work they put in; we look forward to working with them again in the future. We thank them all”.
