The March Branch of the Royal British Legion have celebrated sending their 1000th Goody parcel to troops serving in Afghanistan.

Appeal coordinator Alec Larham said he has been overwhelmed by the support of the public who continue to donate items.

He also thanked the staff and patrons of The Buffs public house who donated more than £600 from their fund raising weekend which included Alec having a

sponsored chest wax.

The Goody Parcel Appeal will continue while troops are still deployed in Afghanistan.
