Dear Mr McCall
We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to both the staff and parents/guardians of St John and St Francis for donating £81.28 towards the international work of The Salvation Army.
Our thanks to the House Captains too, for their support and willingness to collect on our behalf!
The money will be gratefully received by our colleagues in both Turkey and Syria as they continue to support the families impacted by the devastating earthquakes.
Every blessing to you and the St John and St Francis community,
Lieutenants Heather and Jonathan Culshaw

Employment Plus The Salvation Army Bridgwater have a new drop-in at their community hall on Moorland Road. We have linked up with The Salvation Army’s ‘Employment Plus’ team and are offering free, confidential advice and support with a number of things. This service is for those who are actively looking for work, those who may need confidence in writing job applications, confidence-building in general, support with online applications and interview techniques. Employment Plus also offer help with budgeting, signposting those who may need more support with debt management, as well as offering a safe place for people to talk freely about their mental health. The drop-in sessions will be held on Tuesday and Thursday’s from 10.30am to 12.30pm and start 8th March. There is no need to make an appointment – but it can be helpful for the team to make contact before meeting face-to-face. Please see further information below:
