Singing Christmas carols and playing instruments, Salvation Army members kicked off their Christmas Kettle Campaign early at Canadian Tire this year.

Captain Jim VanderHeyden led the others on his guitar accompanied by a bass drum, smaller drum, and tambourine with a variety of well-known songs.

In addition to Canadian Tire, the Christmas Kettle Campaign will have kettles at Save on Foods, Safeway, Walmart and the BC Liquor Store.

Money raised goes to the Salvation Army, which helps those in need in the community.
