No - but we are avoiding town centres and shopping malls. Many of their members are elderly and they may well be doing the same.

I recall them visiting a pub near Xmas when I was playing in a Skittles match which involves at least 24 people. After the SA man who was not very pushy collected very few donations, the Landlord boomed out put your hands in your pockets guys, the SA does a great job and if you want to buy any more drinks at the bar, I expect you to donate. After the message from the Landlord, everyone was very generous and the SA took away the largest donations ever from that pub. It may be a donation to alleviate our consciences but definitely worthwhile.

The Salvation Army seems to be one of the few charities that doesn't spend most of its income on "administration" so there's more to spend on worthwhile work!

Their newspaper was ? " The War Cry." They used to visit pubs in NE England regularly on a Fri/Sat night. Always I put money in their boxes. One Friday night they entered my local, digging into my pocket for change, and not wanting the newspaper, I was approached by a female member. She offered the newspaper and when I said, " No thanks....." and before I could put coins in her box, she said, " I suppose you have it delivered." That put me off them for a while.

We had a choice of 2 newspapers - The War Cry and I think the other one was The Young Soldier.
When the SA girl came into the pub she shouted "War Cry" then we would all shout "GERONIMO" !!! GrinGrinGrin
Happy days
