CON­TIN­U­ING the tra­di­tion of en­sur­ing our troops are re­mem­bered this Christ­mas, the Brand Young Lib­er­als are cre­at­ing care pack­ages for the troops.

West Perth-based Brand Young Lib­er­als spent many hours col­lect­ing do­na­tions from across the State and putting to­gether care pack­ages.

They con­tain nu­mer­ous items for the De­fence Force per­son­nel this Christ­mas in­clud­ing bis­cuits, toi­letries, books and mag­a­zines.

Brand Young Lib­eral chair­man, Ben Reale-Cor­nel said their tra­di­tion was three years young.

“Christ­mas is an im­por­tant time to be with fam­ily and friends. We can only imag­ine that serv­ing over­seas at this time may be dif­fi­cult for our troops and hard on their fam­i­lies back home,” he said.

“The care pack­ages are a small to­ken of ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the troops and a re­minder that we are think­ing of them dur­ing this time while they are away from their fam­i­lies at Christ­mas.”

Mr Reale-Cor­nel added it was also a bit of a thankyou for our ser­vice per­son­nel.

“We thank those who are out there con­tin­u­ing to keep our coun­try safe,” he said.

Last year the group do­nated 200 pack­ages and are hop­ing to garner more sup­port from the com­mu­nity this year.
