    A few weeks back I got a text then later a phonecall off a young squaddie who I met after one of mine and Cliffords previous Goodwill Parcel appeals in 2007 which was made possible by donations from the AirgunBBS thanks to the generous members on that forum we have now sent literally hundreds of food parcels to Afghanistan and Iraq.

    According to this young lad he said nothing has changed and things are still grim foodwise :( .

    Therefore I think its time for us to attempt another parcel delivery to our lads in Afghanistan. I know most of us in this country are now charitied out with all the many GOOD CAUSES various agencies and charities want us to donate to but in this case these are our lads, sons, cousins, brothers, friends we all surely know some one who is or has served in that GOD FORSAKEN DUST BOWL of a country.

    We all recognise our troops are some of the best in the world if not THE BEST and their morale and motivation is very good but after talking to these young squaddies I know first hand how important a shoe box full of goodies means to them when sent from home.

    Myself and Clifftop are about to start sending parcels out to our troops again ASAP and would hope that BBS members would like to donate cash to help us do just that OR send a parcel yourself ITS FREE POSTAGE NOW so for £5 YOU CAN MAKE A YOUNG SQUADDIES DAY .

    IT MATTERS NOT WHO SENDS THEM AS LONG AS WE SEND THEM.

    2kgs which we put into a shoe box sealed with parcel tape. Pot Noodles are particular favourites, Quavers, strong flavoured crisps like Bovril, Cheese and Onion, sweets, Super Noodles, biscuits obviously not chocalate. Don't forget deoderants of the roll on variety, baby wipes, shower gel etc. No glass jars or bottles, no pressurised containers, no chocolate IT MELTS!!

    Pack any spare space out with any recent magazines, toilet rolls or bags of crisps.

    You can fill a 2kg shoe box for £5, the post is now free. Put a little note in from yourself with your address on it so the guy who gets the parcel can answer. Then send the next one directly to him.

    The chaps in our post room at work are putting some boxes aside for me if anyone is stuck? Andrea is going to get her form to send some off when school starts up again.

    Gary can you give us an address to send them to please?
