102 care parcels have been sent to Camp Bastion in Afghanistan thanks to the generous donations made by members of the public in Sittingbourne and Sheppey for the Support Our Soldiers campaign, run by Gordon Henderson MP and his staff.
The campaign was set up in 2003 to encourage and support soldiers by placing specific items into care parcels, which are sent to where they are in action. This year the parcels will be sent to Afghanistan.
