James Stewart treats participants of the Salvation Army drug and alcohol rehabilitation center to a behind-the-scenes tour of the Home And Away set as he raises money for charity

James Stewart was on a charity mission last week.

The Home and Away Star, 45, showed some very valuable VIP guests around the soap’s set.

This exclusive behind-the-scenes opportunity allowed some attendees from William Booth House, the Salvation Army’s drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, to experience the excitement of visiting Summer Bay.

They also got to meet some of the stars of the show, as well as share some of their own travels.

The contestants were all big fans of the show, so it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all of them.

With James’ character on the show, Justin Morgan, who suffers from drug problems, it was particularly distressing for him to hear the stories and experiences of the clients.

The customers also had the special chance to meet and take pictures with some of the other stars, such as Courtney Miller and Kawakawa Fox-Reo.

To top it off, they ran into a staunch supporter of The Salvos Ray Meagher as they left.

The legendary actor, who plays Alf Stewart, spoke kindly and took selfies with the participants.

The visit coincided with the Salvation Army’s Red Shield appeal, which is currently underway.

The money raised from the Red Shield Appeal funds more than 2,000 vital salvo centers and services across the country, including William Booth House.

The salvos aim to raise $32 million by June 30, and anyone in a position to donate can make a donation to the Red Shield Appeal at rescueleger.org.au.

Home And Away is one of Australia’s best-loved and longest-running TV programmes, broadcasting since 1988.
