THANK you for helping to make their day.
Just five days into The Evening Star's Gifts for the Gulf initiative, essential morale-boosting supplies are already flooding in by the parcel-load for Britain's troops.
Your generosity is set to significantly lift the spirits of our military men and women.
Each day, in the blistering heat of the desert, facing sand-storms, relentless dust and little or no respite, our troops are continuing their service objectives with a desperate longing for home.
Thousands of miles from their loved ones and unable to guarantee regular communication with those back home, they crave the smallest piece of their old desert-free life. Your generous gifts are essential to that.
