ATTENTION! Support Our Soldiers

1st February 2013
ATTENTION! Support Our Soldiers

March left, right, left to your nearest Tesco supermarket to support the Support Our Soldiers campaign, which has been launched by Gordon Henderson MP.

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.

Mr Henderson is urging his constituents to purchase one or any number of the items on his special shopping list, which can be found at and put them in the camouflage covered boxes located, throughout February, in local Tesco stores as well as in The Hope Street Centre in Sheerness and Autowash Appliances in Sittingbourne.

Constituents can also write a message on a postcard for the soldiers to read when they open their care parcels. These will be located next to the boxes.

Mr Henderson said,

“As soon as my staff became aware of this campaign they knew they wanted to get involved and encourage others to help them make it a success.

“All those serving in the Armed Forces risk their lives to protect us and it is only right that we support them, which we can all do by making sure they have the bare essentials, which we take for granted at home.

“When you are next out shopping, my staff and I would be very grateful, if you are able to put an extra item in your trolley for the brave soldiers who are on active service.”
