Red Shield raises $4000

COLLECTION: The Red Shield appeal at Inverell has collected $4000 this year.FUNDS are still coming in for the local Red Shield Appeal, which so far has raised around $4000 for the Salvation Army. That number is expected to rise, with text and mail donations still to come in, along with those from the ‘collect your street’ initiative.

“We caught the perfect day for the doorknock,” Salvation Army Captain Robert Mills said of the May 29 appeal.

“Considering Saturday was an absolutely freezer, blowing a gale; Sunday was absolutely perfect.” Around 15-20 doorknockers collected with Captain Mills, who was excited to see first-timers join in.

“They loved it, they collected a lot of money as individuals go,” he said. Although they received an appreciation certificate and McDonalds voucher for their efforts, Captain Mills was pleased to see that wasn’t the main motivation. “They just liked getting out and meeting people and helping out in any way that they can,” he said.

“There’s always a story of stuff that happens, my kids met up with some puppy dogs and that was their highlight. You meet people that otherwise you would never see and you see people’s homes and parts of the town you never go to.” Captain Mills said the Salvation Army did what they could to bring hope into people’s lives, and that Inverell’s support played an important part.
