A message to our generous donors: please follow Government advice to stay at home and do not visit our clothing banks, shops and donation centres during this time
We are extremely grateful to all our donors and supporters who, over the years, have enabled us to raise millions of pounds which goes directly towards funding The Salvation Army’s work with the most vulnerable people in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Now, we ask our donors to help us and follow the Government advice; please do not visit our clothing banks, shops and donation centres during this time as the new stay at home rules apply until the Government reviews them.
Trevor Caffull, Managing Director, said in a previous statement:
“We appreciate your donations and know that this next few weeks may be an opportunity to sort through your clothes and other items. Please hold on to your kind donations and do not visit our clothing banks, shops and donation centres during these extraordinary times – this is not currently deemed an exception by the Government as part of the stay at home rules that now apply to us all.”
The Salvation Army’s work in the community continues
We are the trading arm of The Salvation Army, and to comply with current Government advice we have temporarily closed our clothing banks, shops and donation centres. However, this does not apply to The Salvation Army’s 650 corps and community centres who continue to be a responsive and local presence, providing support to our communities whilst operating within Government guidelines. Please visit The Salvation Army’s website to learn more about how they are responding to the coronavirus pandemic: https://www.salvationarmy.org.uk/news-centre
Salvation Army Trading Company will return to a normal high level of service to support all our customers to the fullest when Government restrictions are lifted.
