ANDERSON THROWS HIS SUPPORT BEHIND THE SALVOS
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson is throwing his support behind the Tamworth Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal this weekend.
Mr Anderson said the Salvation Army does an enormous amount of work that goes unnoticed in our community, and to do that work they need resources.

“The funds raised are for families struggling with cost of living pressures, for electricity, clothing, rent or money for food, or those just needing a helping hand.
“The Salvation Army has been there for these people for so many years, and the theme for this year’s appeal is “Because no one should have to go it alone”.
“I had the pleasure of speaking at the business breakfast launch of the 2015 Red Shield Appeal on Wednesday May 20, supported by the Rotary Club of Tamworth First Light, and I sincerely thank the club for the opportunity to speak about why we need to get behind the Salvos.
“I thank and support Major David Rogerson and his lovely wife Cath. I also support the other divisions in the North West, including Hope House in Gunnedah, and the many members of the Salvation Army who do a magnificent job.
“The Red Shield Appeal happens every year because hope is not part of everybody’s story and the Salvos are passionate about changing that.
