Your final chance to spread Christmas cheer among our troops in Afghanistan is upon you.
The Biggleswade Chronicle Afghan Appeal for 2012 is drawing to a close. The deadline has been brought forward to next Friday (November 2) at noon because of the phenomenal amount of support from readers.
One company, which wishes to remain anonymous, also read about the appeal in the Chronicle and made a large donation.
Consequently the appeal now has enough items to fulfil the target of 50 welfare packages.
But you can add some extra items before Friday if you still wish to donate.
The gifts will go to the No 3 RAF Tactical Police Wing from RAF Henlow in time for Christmas day.
The troops would like sweets such as Haribo, Skittles, wine gums and pastilles, roll-on deodorant, shower gel, toothpaste, biscuits and crisps.
They would also like nuts, foot cream, antiseptic cream, freeze pops, shampoo, conditioner sanitary towels and puzzle books.
Drop your items into our offices in Biggleswade High Street between 9am to 5pm on Monday to Thursday or by the noon deadline on Friday.
