The season of thanks and giving is always one that brings the community together and hopefully reminds us why our town is a great place to live.  After their recent Christmas Present Appeal, The Salvation Army Trowbridge have a special message of thanks for you:

The Salvation Army in Trowbridge would like to say a big thank you to everybody who supported this year’s Christmas Present Appeal. We are so thankful for the wonderful donations of toys and gifts received from the very kind and generous people of Trowbridge and the surrounding areas.    We are grateful to Morrisons in Warminster and Westbury and Tesco Extra and The Shires in Trowbridge who have acted as collections points.  Many individuals, families, companies, churches, village communities, the military, and many other organisations have arranged collections and we have been overwhelmed by the response.

As a result of such generosity and kindness, and the commitment and hard work of our wonderful volunteers, we have been able to support approximately 250 children referred to us by social services who might otherwise have received little or nothing on Christmas morning.  With your monetary donations, we have been able to supply food vouchers to over 120 families who would be struggling this year.  On their behalf, we would like to say a very big thank you to all who have supported us and so enabled us to support them.  We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas and a peaceful new year.

With thanks and Christmas blessings

Michala Lancefield, Church Leader at The Salvation Army in Trowbridge
