Shoeboxes for troops

Have your say

PUPILS celebrated Armed Forces day by sending care packages to troops stationed around the world.

Redlands Primary School, in Redlands Lane, Fareham, took part in the Shoeboxes for our Heroes campaign, filling their boxes with sweets, magazines and home comforts for the soldiers based overseas.

The school is the first in the area to support the charity, which provides more than 8,000 boxes to members of the armed forces each year.

These boxes are a surprise for soldiers abroad.
