2019 Red Shield Appeal

P2E Director Todd Hunt (pictured far left, rear) celebrated the launch of this year’s Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal at the Ipswich Civic Centre Wednesday 1st May 2019. Another great turnout by the Ipswich community and business members ensured a highly successful event. The breakfast alone generated approximately $50K in sponsorship and donations, and attendees witnessed some of the amazing work the Salvos do within our communities and heard some very moving testimonial. Attendees listened to the very talented trio that consisted of John Williams (Salvation Army) and a father and son whom have been part of a salvos program. To say they were amazing would simply not do their performance justice and the courage of father and son in front of a large audience simply brilliant. Especially noting that this gentleman was our testimonial speaker who took us all on an amazing journey!

As long term sponsors of this event and having seen first-hand the amazing work the Salvos perform I am extremely grateful and proud to be apart of this important event. I would like to thank everyone who attended, particularly my table guests. God Bless the Salvos – dig deep and support this years Red Shield Appeal.
