Armed forces thank Miss Southport finalist

Miss Southport finalist Chloe Nicole Brown organised a shoes box appeal to send out gifts to troops out on  operations in the broader Middle East.

The collection took place at the Co-Operative in Ainsdale over the month of April.

An army spokesperson said: “A massive thank you to everyone who kindly donated to the shoe box appeal in Ainsdale and also a huge thank you to Chloe Brown for taking the time to organise and get the parcels sent out to us all here on operations”.

“It’s comforting and makes what we’re doing out here that little bit easier knowing that it’s appreciated back home”
