As Remembrance Day nears, Wightlink are supporting the Royal British Legion’s Handy Van service to help veterans, serving members of the military and their families to stay safe at home.

Handy Vans visit homes across the country to assist people connected to the armed forces with basic tasks such as replacing light bulbs, putting up shelves and improving security facilities.

Handy person Dean Stickland, who covers Hampshire and the Island, will be crossing the Solent with Wightlink to lend a hand. As a retired police officer, he is especially keen to make sure homes are safe and secure.
