THE Salvation Army is set to celebrate Christmas with a busy programme over the next month.
Getting the festivities under way is tomorrow’s annual sale of work at Croft Road between 10am and noon. This year, the event will be opened by Lieutenant Caroline Brophy Parkin, and as well as various stalls and coffee, there will be a visit from Santa at 11am.
Continuing the Yuletide theme, the Salvation Army Songsters will take centre stage for their ‘Sing for Christmas’ concert on Saturday, December 7, in the citadel. Tickets (£5) include supper.
The following day, Sunday, December 8, Teries are invited to bring an unwrapped toy to the service at 11am, after which the toys will be given out to needy families in the town.
With the big day fast approaching, the Salvationists will hold a community carol service in the town hall on Christmas Eve, with a collection taken for the Jumbulance.
The Army’s band and singers will also be performing at various venues during December.
