Wakefield MAG are backing the Support our Soldiers (SOS) 2009 Christmas Parcel Appeal by collecting items to send to our service personnel serving overseas this Christmas. We have a good number of empty shoe boxes that we want to fill with goodies (see below) to send to the troops for Christmas.
We are collecting these at this forthcoming Wednesday's (11th Nov 2009) meeting, so if you would like to donate items, we would love to hear from you !!!
If you want to donate your own parcel, it is recommended to use a sturdy shoebox, ladies or gents size 6,7 or 8 are ideal. Weight limits are imposed so the filled box should weigh no more than 1.8kg. Every parcel is checked before sending out so please leave unsealed.
The key to filling a box is to keep the contents small and light - travel sizes or individual portion sizes are ideal. We recommend a selection of :
Prohibited Items - The following items are strictly forbidden and any parcels containing such items will be stopped and destroyed: Alcohol, Aerosols, Christmas Crackers, Party Poppers, Lighters/Lighter fuel, Matches, Pornographic (even slightly) Magazines/Books
