A FUNDRAISING coffee morning held at the Salvation Army base in Barrhead proved to be everyone’s cup of tea.

Donations were made by people of all ages as they backed the Christian organisation’s efforts to help others.

Similar events are staged at the Salvation Army hall in Barrhead’s Main Street on the first Saturday of every month.

Major Gill Wilkins, of the Salvation Army, told the Barrhead News: “It was a very good morning and I’m grateful to everyone who came along.

“I would say we had a steady trade throughout the morning, with tea, coffee and cakes for those who attended.

“We had all ages coming along, from fairly young children to senior citizens, and we all had a very nice time.

“The money raised will go to the Salvation Army and the Barrhead branch benefits from that.”

Last month, over £100 was raised at a previous coffee morning, which had a “remarkable” turnout.

Among the forthcoming events being planned is a special celebration to mark the 130th anniversary of the Salvation Army in Barrhead.

The Salvation Army is an international movement and is part of the universal Christian Church, with a mission to preach and actively serve and help the local community.
