Story

The last few months have seen immense suffering and hardship from storms, flooding and the cost of living. Has changed everyones lives and turned society upside down. However The Salvation Army is resolute and strong and just as we did in the through pandemic, and during the bombing and the Blitz we will carry on, doing what we can to support people and communities in the ways that we can, within the Government guidelines. In true Salvation Army Spirit, our greatest strength is our flexible, responsive local presence. Right now, each of our 650 corps and community centres will know exactly what the most effective things are to do. We are not just responding to the situation thats impact us in one or two ways, but dozens and dozens of different ways, from the food banks to counselling, from supporting those people who are living alone at this time. These are just some of the ways that we are supporting our communities. Please give what you can to enable us to help as many people as possible.

Here at Dinnington we have been running a food bank for over 20 years. We are working hard to keep the food bank going. Through these very trying times but this is when we are needing help more than ever. We are raising money to keep the food bank going to support the ever growing numbers of people in need in our community, All the money raised here will all go to the work here in our area.
A big thank you goes out to all that have supported us so far, but we are still working as hard supporting the local community.
