As part of our Christmas programme, which encompasses a mix of community focused and Christmas activities, scouts took part in an evening of activity at the Salvation Army’s Southwick base.

This Tuesday, Scouts from Oxclose found out that giving a little help can make a whole lot of difference as they visited the Salvation Army to pack boxes which will be given out over Christmas period in Sunderland. Scouts packed boxes which they had previous made up in previous weeks with tins and packet foods and a 3rd Washington Scouts Christmas card and message fitting for the box. Graham from the Salvation Army centre explained to scouts where the boxes will be given out and what it means to the people who receive them.

The Salvation Army is one of the largest, most diverse providers of social services in the UK after the Government. Founded in East London in 1865, we are now working in 120 countries worldwide. Visit their website for more information
