FESTIVE fundraisers plan to give our troops abroad a happier Christmas by sending them presents. Organisers are hoping to deliver a whopping 22,500 gift boxes to servicemen and women around the world. But organisers say they need YOU to dig deep and make the appeal a success. The joint campaign between the Ministry of Defence and the charity uk4u Thanks! was launched yesterday at the St John's Wood Barracks in north London.
A Lance Corporal from Stoke-on-Trent said he was "chuffed" to receive Christmas presents while serving in southern Afghanistan last year as a campaign to send festive gifts to overseas troops was launched.
More than 22,500 members of the UK's Armed Forces will each get a surprise on Christmas Day, with the launch of a campaign to send charity boxes filled with festive gifts to overseas troops...
