Salvation Army gets boost

THE Salvation Army has received a much-needed boost as the Ipswich group prepares for one its busiest festive seasons on record.

Glebe Road Chiropractic this week donated hundreds of dollars worth of children's gifts as part of Toys for Treatment Week.

Dr Robert Clark said the inaugural campaign would help needy families across Ipswich. He said the generosity of clients had made the week “an overwhelming success”.

“We wanted to find a way to give something back to the community at this time of year,” Dr Clark said. “We decided that Toys for Treat- ment Week would be a way for clients to donate a new or good- quality second-hand toy in exchange for a standard consultation.”

Salvation Army Major Margaret Dobbie said the South Street charity was still accepting Christmas donations.

“We already have 300 families on our books,” she said.

“We provide things like Christmas hampers and the wider Salvation Army provides food vouchers.

“We need food donations and presents for boys; they are two areas where we are lacking.”
