The Salvation Army is currently preparing a DVD to help promote the Helping Hand Scheme project for 2014.
The scheme is wishing to raise as much money as possible to advance the Army’s work in connection with Human Trafficking.
Community Albums, a UK based charity with the aim of giving people a voice, is tasked with producing the DVD and the work is being undertaken in and around our own Church Street premises. Local Salvationists, and others from surrounding corps, have been invited by Divisional Family Officer Maureen Ross to take part in this production and the first meeting took place yesterday with a further session today.
An introduction to the project was given by Carl Jobson )(Salvation Army International Development Department) supported by Samantha Godec (Programme Adviser on Anti-Trafficking and Gender Based Violoence) together with a brainstorming session which has paved the way for some filming to now commence.
We will report further on this exciting item in the days to come. The work is to be completed by the middle of next week.
