Am a bit behind thanks to work, work, work! Today's charity thing was the Salvation Army shop in the town of Fakenham, Norfolk where I dropped off a bag of books while the volunteer behind the counter attempted to make sense of me or the situation! Not sure what it was about my appearance that shocked her so!!
The Salvation Army is a Protestant Christian church known for its extensive philanthropy and charity work. It is an international movement that currently works in over a hundred countries.
It was founded in 1865 in the United Kingdom by William Booth and his wife Catherine as the East London Christian Mission with a quasi-military structure. The theology of the Salvation Army is "mainstream Protestant".
