The thousands of parcels sent to British troops this Christmas quite simply show the appreciation, respect and affection that the British public holds for its Armed Forces.
Congratulations go to the charities 'UK4U' (over 24,500 gift boxes) and 'Support Our Soldiers' (over 15,200 parcels) for all their hard work. In addition to these organisations, thousands of individuals sent parcels to the guys on the frontline to bring them some Christmas cheer and to show them that their work is appreciated.
