View the uk4u 2013 Christmas box

For the nineth year running, Forces’ charity uk4u Thanks! delivered thousands of Christmas Boxes to all those serving on operations overseas or in hospital over the festive season. Boxes were produced to send to members of the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force to ensure they had a present to open on Christmas Day and to let them know that members of the public at home are thinking of them.

Each Christmas Box contains:

  • Christmas Hat and Carol Sheet
  • Mini LED light
  • Travel kit containing neck pillow, eye mask and ear plugs in a pack
  • Sewing Kit (with military coloured thread)
  • Christmas Tree decoration, Jubilee theme
  • Quality Earphones
  • Waterproof Notebook and pencil
  • Top Trumps Playing Cards
  • Melamine Mug
  • uk4u Playing Cards
  • Padlock
  • Packs of ground coffee bags
  • Lightweight digital alarm clock
  • Money Capsule Keyring
  • Plastic Spork
  • Carabiner
  • Beanie Fleece Hat
  • Marks & Spencer Mints
  • Christmas Card
