Afghan Heroes has delivered on its first strategic mission. We can confirm that 10,000 boxes have arrived in Afghanistan in time for distribution to all forces on or before the 26th June 2010 (Armed Forces Day).

Founder Denise Harris has commented that the completion of our first key mission provides a fantastic morale boost for our forces and proves that we as a nation care passionately about our Troops.

Full Story

A group of volunteers spent the weekend packing 10,000 "home comfort" boxes that will now be delivered as a "thank you" to all British service personnel in Afghanistan. The specially-produced ammo-style boxes contain DVD's, Memory Sticks, lip balm, shower gel, Haribo Sweets, toothpaste, puzzle books and other items to remind soldiers of home. They have now been handed over to the Ministry of Defence which will deliver them to the front line as part of Armed Forces Day on June 26.

Around 150 volunteers from children to pensioners, army cadets and members of the military from all over the UK, gave up their time over the weekend to pack the boxes at a building donated for the purpose by the Bath and West Showground in Somerset.
