Helping hands: Service men and women deliver aid to Grand Turk

British soldiers deliver aid to Grand Turk

Ever watched the news of a natural disaster and thought, ‘I wish I could help’? Well, there is a way

Every year the news is full of stories of hurricane season. Last year seemed worse than most with two category five hurricanes (Maria and Irma).

It was tough to watch the footage of the enormous devastation and loss of life caused. So how good must it have felt to be able to bring some relief to the affected areas, like these British servicemen and women
who helped to deliver aid including 2,000 much-needed bottles of drinking water to Grand Turk in the Turks and Caicos islands.
