Salvation Army UK and Ireland Territory serves hot drinks and snacks to tradespeople & dancing stars


The Salvation Army United Kingdom and the Ireland Territory has provided 3,500 hot drinks to tradespeople and strictly Dancing stars participating in the hit BBC One show ‘DIY SOS The Big Build!’. 

Reportedly, the Salvation Army Volunteers from the Shiremoor, Newcastle City Temple and North Shields churches spent five days serving hot drinks, snacks and water from one of their Emergency Response Vehicles, which kept workers going.


 The show recruits local tradespeople and suppliers to help build ambitious projects for local families and the community. The Shiremoor church was led by the Salvation Army Captain Keith Scales and his wife, Faith.

In the shared pictures, Captain Keith Scales and his wife Faith served hot drinks and snacks to the tradespeople in a red-coloured Salvation Army bus.

Captain Keith Scales, who leads our Shiremoor church with his wife Faith, extended their pleasure and pride to the Salvation Army and said:

“We had so many conversations about what it meant to the building team for us to be there supporting them…There was great camaraderie. The staff and the team were all so lovely.”

Further, while sharing about their experience, they shared, “We heard so many interesting stories about why people wanted to participate in the show. One builder had been an addict and was doing this to give something back. It was invaluable for building relationships which will be long-lasting. It helped us, The Salvation Army because people within the community will remember how we supported them.”

DIY SOS The Big Build, presented by Nick Knowles, was aired on Wednesday, 30 August. The episode was a Strictly Come Dancing special featuring judge Anton Du Beke and dancers Katya Jones, Luba Mushtuk, Graziano Di Prima and Nancy Xu.
