December is certainly a busy month for members of Morriston Citadel, our Band, Songsters and Salvation’s Song have been presenting festive music in and around the local area in 33 separate engagements that have included supermarkets, schools, care homes, hospitals and local churches. Our collectors have been astounded by the level of public giving this year.
Alongside all this we have been supporting 90+ families who this Christmas find themselves in need.
Staff at Tesco in Pontadawe have been generous in their time in getting together all the food we have required to prepare the food parcels for all those we are supporting.
Asda in Llansamlet has been accepting donations for our foodbank from staff and customers and several trolleys of food have been donated to the corps.
Our toy appeal has seen donations from individuals, local schools and whole streets where all the neighbours have got together to provide gifts as well as from members of our church at our own Toy Service (18/12/16) meaning that many children will now find presents under their tree on Christmas Day.
Members of the public have turned up at our hall to make donations. One lady arrived with a car boot full of food. Another lady turned up with four children, of which two of them had spent 3 hours Carol Singing around Craigcefnparc after seeing the National TV Christmas Appeal adverts and wanting to do something for The Salvation Army. The girls were able to see work in progress as food and toy parcels were being assembled in the hall and presented Major David McCaw-Aldworth with a cheque for £100.00
We would like to thank you all for your continued support of the work of The Salvation Army here in Morriston and wish you all a blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.
