Cate Blanchett stands by Salvation Army’s Red Shield Appeal

CATE Blanchett has stood by the Salvation Army's Red Shield Appeal despite the embattled organisation's controversial year before the royal commission.

Turning out to the official launch of the annual charity drive in Sydney on Thursday, Ms Blanchett posed for photos alongside businessman David Gonski.

Salvation Army Eastern Territory Commander James Condon told the crowd he remained "shocked and ashamed" by the historic abuse that had occurred at several of the army's homes but assured the crowd donations would not be used to fund legal costs.
