Throughout October we at St Molua’s are collecting shoeboxes for the annual Blythswood Care Christmas appeal. Your kindness and generosity makes such a difference, receiving a filled shoebox brings so much joy. Things we take for granted are like luxuries to people living in poverty.
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.
It may be that you have difficulty in finding empty shoeboxes. If this is the case, please use a drawstring bag instead (like a gym bag). The maximum size should be 400mm x 300mm which can hold as much as an averaged sized shoebox. We also request that the bag is not plastic as the bag itself is a really useful item to give to people.
For all you knitters out there, hats, scarfs and gloves are always needed – there is some useful information and patterns available on the Blythswood website .
