Cream tea and football

August 03 2018

STAPLE Hill's Salvation Army capitalised on the quarter finals of the World Cup by showing the England vs Sweden game on the big screen and laying on a cream tea.

The event raised £315 from donations which will be added to the sum the church raises for the annual Big Collection, which supports the social work carried out nationally by the Salvation Army.

"It was great to see the hall full for the afternoon, and people enjoying both the football and each other’s company," said Major Colin Hylton-Jones, who leads the church with wife Nicola.
