HMS Illustrious & Friends of the Sea Charity Collection 2013

Scouts visited the Royal Navy’s last remaining helicopter carrier HMS Illustrious which made her final visit to the River Mersey over the weekend 16th/17th February 2013. The light aircraft carrier is sister ship to the now decommissioned Ark Royal and Invincible. The Scouts had an exclusive visit to the ship along with other youth organisations prior to her opening to the public. They visited the bridge and aircraft hangers learning about the weapons, fire fighting, first aid, survival at sea and even how to fold a napkin for the mess room! After visiting the ship they collected on behalf of the local maritime charity 'Friends of the Sea' who help support local maritime organisations which include Sea Cadets, Sea Scouts, UK North Blind Sailing School, Liverpool Seafarers Centre and many others.
