Commonwealth Games: Thirsty Glasgow 2014 visitors hail Salvation Army

published on 24 Jul 2014


Volunteers have been working around the clock to hand out bottles of water to thirsty Commonwealth Games visitors.  

As Glasgow continues to bask in a mini heatwave, Salvation Army teams have been keeping travellers hydrated by giving out water at Central Station, the city’s main train station.   

Those who have visited the church and charity’s water stall say it has been a godsend, especially with the thermometer on the rise.  

Major Michael Watkins, the leader of our church in Rutherglen, reckons the response from people over the past couple of days has been amazing.  

And he paid tribute to Central Station bosses for their help and support in making the water distribution possible.  

Major Watkins said: "People have been coming up and thanking us for what we are doing. It has been an excellent response."
