The home of the mother of celebrated Corby soldier James Ashworth has been given a special garden makeover.
The charity Forces Support spent three days last week digging, paving and planting to give Kerry Ashworth a much-deserved surprise - and a place to remember her son.
L/Cpl James Ashworth died in action in Afghanistan in 2012 and was later posthumously awarded the Victoria Cross for gallantry.
As Mrs Ashworth was shown the completed garden, she shed a tear before hugging the team responsible for the makeover.
The garden includes a plaque in tribute to 23-year-old James and the original headstone from his grave.
Forces Support does makeover projects all over the UK for families who have lost loved ones in action.
The idea is to offer a helping hand when times are at their most tough.
Since they began in 2010, the charity has completed more than 120 of the transformation projects and Mrs Ashworth's is the 47th just this year.
The charity does the painting, decorating, and other household tasks - things that might seem insignificant on their own, but can cause extra stress in an already grieving home.
