Festive cheer for our troops thanks to Liverpool firm

A Liverpool firm is sending Christmas decorations to Afghanistan in a bid to brighten up the festive season for our troops.

The Christmas Decorators in Wavertree is already supplying NATO bases with Christmas trees, garlands and baubles.

But when the wife of a solider serving in Camp Bastion feared they wouldn't have enough decorations, the firm decided to step in.
