Salvation Army leaders in Hawick are celebrating the formal opening of their new community store in High Street which will boost their outreach work in the town.
The Salvation Army’s senior leader in the east of Scotland, Lieutenant Colonel Carol Bailey, cut the ribbon as a blessing was pronounced on this new venture. It offers a range of preowned items for sale, including furniture. The store also becomes the collection point for the local foodbank.
Profits from the project will go to The Salvation Army’s church and community centre in Croft Road which, under the leadership of Lieutenant Caroline Brophy-Parkin, runs a range of activities including parent and toddlers and other community support clubs.
To donate items for the store, volunteer, or to find out more, call 01450 378761 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
