The Salvation Army will take over George Square from 10.30 am – 3.30 pm on Saturday September 11 with a range of activities aimed at connecting Glasgow’s residents, shoppers and visitors with the work of one of the country’s largest and most diverse providers of social services.

Face painting, bands, displays, puppets, singing groups, football – very important! – plus a bouncy castle and free drinks and snacks are on offer.

“Enjoyment is the order of the day, but Saturday’s event will challenge us,” said the Army’s west Scotland divisional leader, Major Victor Kennedy.

“Our aim is to engage the people of Glasgow in our fight for social justice for the poor and disadvantaged, the marginalised and deprived.”
