Hi, Some of you may recall me writing on here a while ago about being an area coordinator for http://www.supportoursoldiers.co.ukhttp://www.supportoursoldiers.co.uk
Many of you gave me a lot of support suggesting companies to contact for donations, im still looking for more companies to contact if you have any more suggestions.
Becksdaw and Crazy were particularly helpful.
Anyway, the latest news on support our soldiers is that yesterday we were granted charity status which will now make it easier to approach companies and do fund raising to raise funds to buy things that are required to send to the troops in Afganistan and Iraq.
We were also campaigning for free postage - instead of paying the £6 per shoe box it was costing to get it to London, and then the RAF were taking the boxes to their destinations for free - this has helped as there is now free postage from September 3rd - 9th November and then the free christmas postage that takes place every year kicks in.
We are however campigning still to get the free postage for after christmas also to enable families and friends of loved ones to be able to send parcels to boost morale - so please sign the petition on the http://www.supportoursoldiers.comhttp://www.supportoursoldiers.com
under the notice board section there is a link.
