AN Ashington firm has delivered a tonic for the troops.
The All-in-One Company has sent a consignment of its sleepsuits over to Afghanistan to keep soldiers serving there warm at night.
The gift was dispatched in response to a request by Darlington-born corporal Steve Lamb, currently on a six-month tour of the war-torn nation with 20 Armoured Brigade.
He e-mailed Kate Dawson, founder of the North Seaton Industrial Estate firm, to request some all-in-one sleep suits for his 10-strong section.
Steve, 32 asked: “Can I be cheeky and ask for a donation of a couple of onesies as they would be very useful with the cold nights over Christmas here in Afghan?”
Kate, pictured, was more than happy to oblige, saying: “We are delighted to do anything we can to brighten up their lives.
“Steve and his colleagues are doing a fantastic job.
“It’s really satisfying to know that we are able to help real heroes like Steve and his mates.”
