Salvation Army gives back to local community

Members of the Salvation Army were on hand to deliver donations to local Bordertown community groups yesterday.

The Salvation Army handed over five thousand dollars to seven local community groups within the Tatiara. These donations come from the shop takings at the Bordertown store.

Salvation Army Lieutenant Tracy Sutton thanked the Tatiara groups for the work they undertake during the year.

“We are here today to say thank you.

“These grants signify our commitment to the Bordertown and Tatiara community, we want to partner with you and support the community to continue to do some of the great work that you do.

“We wouldn’t have a shop if people didn’t donate so it’s great that the wider Tatiara supports the cause,” she said.

The groups that will benefit from these donations include:

Tatiara Royal Flying Doctor Service branch, Bordertown Memorial Hospital, Girl Guides, 5tcb Radio Station, Tree of Hope motorbike ride, SA Ambulance service; and the Chaplains.
