    New and after something already.... go on, have a read!

    Hi everyone, thanks for taking the 2 mins out to read this. I'm new to the site so first of all I'd like to say hello to you all and look forward to some banter between us!

    I'm an area coordinator for Support Our Soldiers so I'd like to let you know about our xmas parcels appeal. Basically, we send parcels out to troops overseas at xmas. These are filled with essential items but also xmas party items like santa hats, xmas cake, sweeties - things to try and boost morale a little at what can be a difficult time.

    Have a look at the website for full details of how to get involved. You can either put a parcel together, donate individual items or a cash donation. We ask that the parcels are distributed to those with no family connections or receive no mail in the first instance. Last year we got 2500 parcels out but this year is already looking to beat that by a long way.

    Of course, WE'RE HERE FOR YOU TOO! We offer support to both sides of the team.

    For full details of the charity & the Xmas parcels appeal (inc how to put a box togther, closing dates etc) please give us a look.

    We're at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffs this weekend (27 Oct) so if you're in the area please pop in and say hello.

    Welcome LL - I think we all send parcels to someone, but I for one will happily fill another few.

    Good luck with the campaign and thanks for all of your hard work!

    Welcome LL - do let us know how you found the NMA - it sounds fantastic.

    Parcels are a great idea - are the Christmas cakes allowed to be - how shall I say it - well preserved with liquid so that they don't go mouldy in the heat????

    Well the parcels aren't supposed to have any alcohol in them (and we have to check them before posting) but as for cake ingredients.... well how are we supposed to know?
