A group of 10 RAF Halton airmen have been brightening up Princes Risborough School by painting three classrooms and the art room.

The Servicemen Awaiting Trade Training (SATTs) along with their instructor, Cpl Greg Daly, volunteered for the task which took just two days.

Although most had very little experience of painting the work was still completed to a high standard thanks to mentoring from the more experienced personnel of Cpl Daly and AC James Tookey.

Refreshments kindly provided by school caretaker Maggie Hawes helped the job along too.

AC Tookey said: “It’s a task that that we were really looking forward to and it was great to have such an enthusiastic group of individuals here to do the job.”

All the volunteers said that they had a great time helping the school and would happily help out again in the future.
