Home comfort for troops from Mansell pair

Troops serving in Afghanistan are getting some extra home comforts – thanks to two tenant liaison officers from the Stourbridge-based Western region of Mansell Construction.

Tracey Astbury and Sarah Fletcher took part in the Help for Heroes Shoebox initiative. They held a collection among Mansell staff and suppliers and collected items to put into shoe boxes which were parcelled up for the troops.

They collected toiletries, sweets, noodles, packets of soup and other items to give the soldiers some home comforts that they might not otherwise have.

Mansell Western region managing director Steve Davies said,” They worked really hard to get all the items together and package them up. It was very thoughtful of them and I’m proud of their efforts.”
