Towards the end of last year an appeal was made from the team at Hull4Heroes asking for donations to make up Christmas treat boxes for local soldiers from the Yorkshire Regiment who returned to Afghanistan in November and would be there over the Christmas period.
As a result of this Karen sent an email to all staff asking if they would be willing to help. This picture shows Helen from Hull4Heroes meeting some of the staff who responded and a selection of some of the wonderful items that were donated.
Karen recently met some of the team from Hull4Heroes and learnt that altogether 525 Christmas boxes were completed. Paul, a spokesman from the team, expressed his gratitude for our generosity and said that these boxes were always very well received and meant a lot to the serving personnel.
