The Salvation Army is reporting a satisfactory response to its most recent annual fund raising appeals held at the end of last year.

Major Rosemarie Brown, Salvation Army Divisional Commander for Barbados and St. Lucia, said results from the 2012 Christmas kettle and letter fund-raisers were generally on par with the previous year, though there was a slight drop in kettle receipts.

Brown thanked Barbadians for their generosity in trying financial circumstances.

“The Salvation Army wishes to say thanks to all Barbados for the continued support given to the Army’s annual Christmas Appeal,” she said.

“In these harsh economic times when everyone seems to be cutting back, this is a tribute to the generosity of Barbadians and their appreciation of the work done by The Salvation Army. We are just where we were last year at this time. Thank you, Barbados!”
