THE Salvation Army which began in the East End is launching its annual appeal for funds.
Booth House on Whitechapel Road is the charity's largest hostel and offers support for 150 homeless single men.
The charity's supporters will be collecting funds at Underground and railway stations across London to help support its community world with some of the most vulnerable people in the capital.
Alongside hostels the charity which started in Whitechapel in the 1860s runs a family tracing service to help put relatives back in touch with each other.
