• Carols a ‘cracker of a night’

Some of the many Salvos backstage at the Woolworths Carols in the Domain in Sydney on Saturday night.

The Salvation Army was out in force once again at this year’s Woolworths Carols in the Domain in Sydney on Saturday night.


Whether it was on stage as part of the choir, packing and selling candle bags to raise money for homelessness, or volunteering as ushers and ticket scanners, Salvos were a visible presence during the annual Christmas showcase.


“It was a cracker of a night ... best one I have been to,” said Territorial Commander Commissioner Miriam Gluyas. “Super proud of our folk – choir, volunteers, collectors, ushers, all-round champions!”


Carols in the Domain will be televised on Channel 7 on Saturday night, 23 December (7.30pm AEDT).


More than 3500 candle bags were sold on the night, with another 2500 to be distributed to various Salvos Stores this week for sale. Organisers hope to raise $100,000 for the Army’s frontline services.


The candle bags were packed by more than 300 volunteers in the days leading up to Carols in the Domain.


Director of Choirs Peter Hayward said it was a “huge honour” to play a key role in the event. “Thanks to everyone who came along and joined The Salvation Army and Carols in the Domain choir this year, especially to Greg Donovan for being the man who made everything about the choir happen.
