Operation Shoebox UK supporting UK troops
We have been working tirelessly and will continue to do so to support our troops based in Afghanistan. We work within the guidelines and with the agreement of the British Military and the Ministry of Defence and the BFPO. Our troops are based out in Afghanistan all year round and with your help we support our troops throughout their tour, every single day, all year and not just at Christmas!
