Surprise Supplies came about because of an idea Lexi Douglas had whilst her son was serving in Afghanistan in 2007. She regularly sent him parcels stuffed full of cakes and other nice things and when Charlie wrote home he said how appreciated they were but that not all of the boys received parcels from home so he would share his out with them. Lexi told her friends and they volunteered to send parcels and the idea grew from there.
To me this seems like a fantastic idea and a very simple way to encourage a soldier and thank them for serving abroad and defending our freedom and country.
NB If you have any shoe boxes or donations please send them my way or I'll simply HAVE to go shoe shopping just to get some boxes :P
