Christmas with the Salvos (Saturday 10 December 2022 Channel 7)



The Salvation Army special “Christmas with the Salvos” will return to Channel 7 this December to usher in the holiday season for the third consecutive year.

The Salvation Army’s Christmas television special, “Christmas with the Salvos,” aims to spread happiness and hope to Australians across the nation this holiday season.

The 30-minute television special is hosted by TV legend and Salvos ambassador Ray Meagher (Home and Away), and it includes Salvos champions The Wiggles and Weekend Sunrise weather presenter James Tobin, who teamed up to support The Salvos and give back during the holiday season.

“I’ve been an ambassador for The Salvos for many years now, and in that time, I’ve seen the extraordinary work they do. I’ve had the privilege of visiting many of their centres and seeing their work with youth, drug and alcohol rehabilitation and homelessness,”

said host Ray Meagher. “Remember The Salvation Army is here for you this Christmas, so if you need a hand please reach out and know you’re not alone.”

The special highlights the inspirational work of The Salvos across country, showcasing stories from work done in homelessness, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, natural disaster recovery and their key Christmas outreach through the distribution of toys, hampers and community meals.

‘Christmas with the Salvos’ coincides with The Salvation Army’s Christmas Appeal, which aims to raise $23 million to ensure that Aussies doing it tough can get the support they need this Christmas.

Red Wiggle Simon Pryce from The Wiggles who featured in last year’s Salvos Christmas special, said, “If you are needing help, The Salvos are great place to go and also if you have the ability to donate some money, it’s a great Appeal. Particularly around Christmas, when people are doing it tough not just with the floods but all across Australia, so it’s a great chance to help them through The Salvation Army.”

At Christmas time, The Salvos distribute hundreds of thousands of gifts and toys, over 64,000 hampers and over 130,000 meals to those who are struggling during the Christmas period, all of which cannot happen without the generosity of the Australian public.

‘Christmas with the Salvos’ airs Saturday 10 December at 12.00pm on Channel 7.

There will be encore screenings on Christmas Eve (Saturday 24th December) at 12.00pm and Christmas Day (Sunday 25th December) at 11.30am. It will also be available to stream on 7Plus from 10th December.
