MATT Copping, from the 26 Engineer Regiment based in Tidworth, tends to be organised with his Christmas shopping and does most of it online.

“I don’t like shopping in busy shops,” said Matt, who has to buy presents for between 10 and 15 people this year. “I like to feel organised with buying Christmas presents but sometime it doesn’t work out that way and I’m having to rush around trying to find last-minute ideas.”
