A Brief message from the organiser

Every day our brave British soldiers are deployed to dangerous parts of the world, facing things you and I can’t even imagine.

One of those soldiers is my brother. He has recently been deployed to Afghanistan, him and his colleagues keeping us in Britain safe, to eat our Turkey and enjoy our Christmas presents in the peace that we so take for granted. I miss my brother dreadfully and worry about him every day, if each of you can imagine one of those troops as your brother, or dad, or niece, or daughter I believe together we can put a smile on their faces for Christmas!

To take my mind off worrying about my brother I am getting the local community of Oxfordshire to band together to get together enough donations to send Christmas parcels to our British troops on the frontline. We are trying to raise enough donations to send 200 + boxes to our brave men and women, whom Christmas will be very different for this year. If each of you can buy one more present, donate items towards a Christmas parcel or raise some money, even if it’s £10.00 we can really make this happen, Christmas is a time of joy and celebration – a time to be jolly and surrounded by love, lets surround our troops with our love – by making this project a reality, with your help, this can really happen, We are working in partnership with Support Our Soldiers Charity (registered charity number 1120684)

We have our local schools taking part in decorating our boxes and making Christmas cards to go inside, to add the personalized side to it, we have a few businesses that will be raising money during the build up to Christmas and wrapping gifts in store with all proceeds going to our troop’s boxes.
Please help us make this dream a reality for my brother and all his fellow soldiers who have a horrible task day in and day out.
If you would like to take part or would like to donate anything please contact me or if you know someone over there that would like a parcel please send me there details.
