Acorn are proud to supply the Salvation Army. It is amazing just how much work the S A do and how varied it is today. For example I pinched this little snippet from their web site.
The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games has confirmed that, subject to final contract negotiations, the venue for the Mountain Biking events will beÂ The Salvation Army’s Hadleigh Farm.
In 1890 when William Booth, the founder of The Salvation Army, bought Hadleigh Farm. He helped men who were living in very poor conditions in London and gave them the chance to train to become farmers. Booth found the Hadleigh Farm trainees farming jobs in Britain. Opened in 1990, the Training Centre maintains a long history of Salvation Army work with the unemployed and marginalised in Hadleigh.
