Faslane volunteers help Children’s Hospice Association Scotland

19 September 2016
A team of 14 sailors and marines from HM Naval Base Clyde helped the Robin House Children’s Hospice get ready for its garden open day on Saturday, 10 September 2016.

The Faslane team headed over the hill to the hospice in nearby Balloch, and spent a whole day carrying out garden maintenance – weeding and clearing away leaf litter.

Submariner Able Seaman Logistician (Steward) Danielle Skinner said: “Robin House carries out brilliant work allowing families with terminally ill children to have fun and enjoy being together at a very difficult time in their lives – it was a humbling and positive experience and an absolute please to help out in this small way.”

Scotland’s second children’s hospice, Robin House, was opened in 2005. Like Scotland’s first children’s hospice Rachel House, the hospice offers a purpose-built ‘home from home’ with accommodation for eight families from across Scotland at any one time.

HM Naval Base Clyde is Scotland’s largest military establishment and is home to the UK Submarine Service.
