The Coffs Coast Advocate

Salvo's biggest appeal

THE Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal Doorknock went ahead yesterday despite drizzly conditions.

Coffs Harbour residents dug deep to raise $25,000, with one block in the Coffs Harbour locality raising $1014.

"It's been an incredible doorknock," Volunteer doorknock Appeal Chairman Robert Mill said. "It's quite a surprise."

Mr Mill has been organising the Doorknock in Coffs Harbour for 17 years and this is the biggest tally he's received.

Mr Mill said that there were 350 volunteers yesterday despite the inclement weather.
