The Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal is once again raising much needed funds for those in the community who are in need and disadvantaged.

A fundraiser on Friday, June 1, raised $6250 and organisers Rob Heaslip, Andrew Hill and Derek McIlroy presented the cheque to Salvation Army major Howard Trendell.

Major Trendell said the money takes the total of the Red Shield Appeal in this area to $20,500.

“The average we raise is $23,000 and the appeal will run until June 30,” he said.

“Hopefully more donations will continue and the community can donate by dropping money in the many tins around the region or at the Salvation Army office on the corner of Crozier Road and Torrens Street.”

Major Trendell said he thanked Rob, Andrew and Derek for their efforts and all the hard work they do to raise the much needed funds.

“It is a vital part of the Red Shield Appeal, as it is the third year they have done this and the total, raised over the three years is more than $15,000. It is very much appreciated.”
