Students at a Biggin Hill school filled more than 50 shoeboxes full of festive treats for troops in Afghanistan.
The morale boxes were put together by children at Charles Darwin School, in Jail Lane, and included small gifts, Christmas food and decorations.
All 52 packages were posed at the weekend and should reach the soldiers in the Middle East by December 25.
Anne Adams, head of Year 9, said: “This is the fourth year that the school has been involved in this project and this year we are delighted that the donations came in from every year group and not just the Year 9s.
“From previous experience we know that these parcels are very well-received and give a real morale boost to the troops, letting them know that people at home are thinking of them at this special time of year.
“I would like to thank everyone who has supported this project.”
