Selling the Army's papers
Heralds sell our War Cry and Kids Alive! to the public - any profit goes to the local corps.
Speak to your corps officer if you'd like to become a herald.
Richard Smart is a herald from Wimbledon Corps. He says: ‘The War Cry is a gift that follows their donation and opens up doors to have a chat with them about Jesus, which you wouldn’t otherwise be able to do.
‘We’re a small corps – there are only about 20 of us - so that extra £2,000 we make through paper sales is actually very important.’
