    Today the Guardian is calling on their readers to show their support for soldiers in Afghanistan by wearing one of their new wristbands.

    The navy blue wristbands carry the name of their 'We Salute You' campaign on them and they are calling on the people of Chorley and Leyland to wear one with pride.

    The wristbands and customised keyrings are available directly from the Guardian's office or by sending a SAE to them at their Market Street office.

    There is no cost but people are being invited to make a donation, which will go towards the charity Help for Heroes (H4H), which helps care for wounded soldiers.

    Marsden Rawsthorn were asked by the Guardian to help support the cause by sponsoring the wristbands.
