Bombardiers drop gifts at Salvation Army in Salisbury

MEMBERS of The Salvation Army in Salisbury were left ‘surprised and delighted’ after receiving a substantial delivery of Christmas gifts and goodies from members of the 14th Regiment, Royal Artillery, 1st Battery based in Larkhill.

Bombardiers Joe Smith and Robin Duncan delivered the array of presents collected from members of the regiment, family and friends, to the Salvation Army headquarters on Salt Lane.

“It was a lovely surprise to receive this special delivery of items,” said Captain Martin Davison, leader of Salisbury Salvation Army Church and Community Hub.

“We have received more requests than ever for support this year, so this was just what we needed to prepare for our busy time of Christmas deliveries.”

If you would like to support the Salisbury Christmas gift Appeal you still have time to contribute as the charity runs the initiative right up until December 23 when the final c deliveries are made.

New and unwrapped gifts can be dropped off at Salisbury Salvation Army on Thursday, Friday or Saturday, from 10am until 1pm.

Alternatively, cash donations can be made to the Salisbury Salvation Army JustGiving page online, or in person at the Army’s hall.

The Salvation Army Band will be playing carols in Salisbury City Centre each Saturday until Christmas eve when they lead community carol singing in the Guildhall Square organised by Salisbury City Council.
