    Good Evening Vinnette

    Thank you very much for your offer.i have been told that we are currently well supplied for toys and books , and unfortunately we have little storage space to take in any more.I believe the Gillingham Corps 01634 851224 used to run a charity shop , so it may be worth a call to them.

    Once again your offer is really appreciated



  8. Kevin Abbott says:

    Good Evening Vinnette

    I will make enquiries with our Childrens work leader , could you advise me what sort of age range are the books and toys



  9. Vinnette Powell says:


    I have lots of books, toys and a keyboard that my son has outgrown. Are you looking for donations? If so I could bring them down to you.

  28. Tess Dexter says:

    Dear Officer

    I am an ex Salvationist living in Central North Division.

    I remember General Gowans from my army days and love his songs and prayer poems.

    I read one of his poems aloud at my Evangelical Pentecostal church in Atherton last Sunday , and will be reading more (I have the cd with dozens of his poems on it).

    I only met John once, at a SA celebration in Bolton, but it was wonderful to shake the hand of this gentleman I had admired for so long.

    At present I am reading the ebook “the girl with a mind of her own”which i have downloaded onto my tablet…..what a beautifully fascinating insight into my beloved SA !!!

    I was wondering if Commisioner Gisele still attends your Corps and if so, would it be acceptable for me to email her?

    The ebook has brought up quite a lot of issues for me which I would love to as? about/share with Commisioner….if she is up to it and can spare the time??

    I know she is a little older than myself (I am 74), but I have no idea what her health is like, so will understand if it isnt possible to send her my thoughts.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

  29. Kevin Abbott says:

    Thanks in advanced.
    Tanya Lonte

  35. Kevin Abbott says:

    Good morning

    Would you be able to pass on full details of the event. I will then give the info to our Bandmaster who could then contact you directly



  36. Karl Hurst says:


    You were suggested to us by the Canterbury band. They said you may be able to play for us at our Vicarage garden party on Saturday 6th July. We expect between 100 – 200 people.

  37. Kevin Abbott says:

    Good Evening . I think the best thing to do is to call our office Telephone: 01634 843689 and speak to Major Ian Payne. He may be aware of places to contact , or Salvation army furniture shops that may be able to help. if you are in the area maybe you could go to the hall and speak face to face.

    Kind regards
