Army salutes its Christmas heroes

The Salvation Army in North Shields would like to express its sincere appreciation for the generous financial support in recent days, together with donations of toys, gifts and food supplies.

Over 500 parcels were distributed to the children of needy families in the district prior to Christmas.

We served in excess of 90 meals on Christmas Day, to those in our community who would have otherwise spent Christmas alone.

We give praise to our volunteers who assisted in preparing and serving the Christmas Day lunch at our hall in Howard Street, together with those who supported with the transport.

May God bless you all!
