Be generous with your support of the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Door Knock Appeal – that’s the message from Bill Sykes, The Nationals Member for

The Red Shield Door Knock Appeal this year runs from Saturday, 27 May until Sunday, 4 June, and the Salvos hope to raise in excess of $2 million across Victoria.

Dr Sykes said, “The Salvation Army does outstanding community work – as my Dad used to say, you can always count on the Salvos – they were at the front line in both world wars and they are still on the front line assisting communities today. I work closely with the local Salvos addressing issues such as youth homelessness and helping families in crisis.

Dr Sykes continued, “Individuals and clubs can help the Salvo’s Red Shield Door Knock Appeal by forming a door knocking team or doing a collection at a major sporting event and other community gatherings. Donations can also be made by mail, phone, internet or at my office”.

Dr Sykes concluded, “I urge everyone to give generously and also to help with the appeal”.
