Salvos launch Red Shield Appeal

ABOUT 200 business people attended The Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal launch in Rockhampton earlier this morning.

Held at the Frenchville Sports Club, Salvos’ Captain Meaghan Gallagher said guest speaker former Australian cricketer Carl Rackemann kept everyone in stitches.
