Throughout October we at St Molua’s will be collecting shoeboxes for the annual Blythswood Care Christmas appeal. Your kindness and generosity makes such a difference, receiving a shoebox brings so much joy. Things we take for granted are like luxuries to people living in poverty.
Blythswood Care hope to be able to deliver boxes to vulnerable communities across Eastern Europe including Ukraine, Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Romania and Serbia. Watch the Blythswood Care Shoe Box Appeal videos below and consider filling a shoebox this year to bring some joy to someone in need this Christmas.
If you can, please fill a shoebox and bring it to church before the end of October – thank you.
- Please use average sized shoeboxes and decide who to fill it for (man/ woman/ teenager/ child), fill with a selection of products from the suggested list below which is also available in church and the Hamilton Hall.
- Donate £3 minimum to cover the cost of transporting, and secure with rubber bands.
Hats, scarfs and gloves are always needed – there is some useful information and patterns available on the Blythswood website .
