Sorry we have been lacking in posts – Christmas is a busy time! We have decided to start the 12 days of blogmas! A post a day for 12 days leading up to Christmas – most Christmas themed.
Tuesday night was a lovely night, singing Christmas carols with the Salvation Army band. Around the Christmas season the Salvation Army band perform at a number of events around the UK in order to bring happiness to everyone. They stand in a public place for all to attend Christians or not, all are welcome to join in the Christmas carol singing. If you haven’t attended one of these events I highly recommend.
The Salvation Army are a Christian charity group trying to make a difference to the world. They help with a number of things but these are some of them:
- Addiction Dependency
- Emergency Response
- Family Tracking
- Health (Running Hospitals and Clinics in needy areas of the world)
- Social Work
- Many International Projects they have worked on
Every year the Salvation Army band comes to our town for all to get wrapped up and join in the carol singing, from Away in a Manger to In the Bleak Mid-Winter. We gather by a parade of shops to sing for an hour or so, open to everyone, and finish at the church down the road for mince pies and hot drinks for a donation price if you want to follow. This is a lovely way to get everyone involved, bring joy and happiness to all and spread the word about all the hard work and help they bring to the world.
Lovely evening to see your community come together and help a well-deserved Charity out at this time of the year for them to help the ones in need around the world.
If you would like to know more about what they do, check out their website.
Thank you for reading and we would love to hear if you join in with anything like this in your town?
Have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year!
