Salvation Army Band’s Angus dates

BELLSHILL Salvation Army Band will be making its seventh annual visit to Angus on Sunday, December 11 for a series of performances which will raise funds for Lippen Care.

The band will be conducting morning worship for the first time at Glamis Kirk before playing at Glamis Castle at 2.45 pm.

They will then visit Whitehills Health and Community Care Centre to play some Christmas music for patients and staff at the Strathmore Hospice, before the Christmas festival at the Lowson Memorial Parish Church in the evening at 6.30 pm.

During the past seven years the band has raised thousands of pounds for local good causes, and this year’s recipients will be Lippen Care.

All venues for the band this year are free admission but a collection will be made for the chosen charity.

Major Jim McCluskey said: “The band’s visit to the Forfar area always generates a lot of excitement and the band look forward to it immensely, so much so that it is the first date entered in their engagement diary for the new year.

“The band has toured extensively in Europe and the U.K. but Forfar is a favourite destination.

“They are delighted to support Lippen Care this year and look forward to what will be a very busy but enjoyable day for them.”
