Every year in the run up to Christmas as a congregation we donate shoe boxes with presents to Christian Missionary Organisation, Blythswood Care. These presents are then sent out and distributed to those in Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Pakistan, Romania and Serbia in time for Christmas. We are again looking to do the same, so please collect and fill shoe boxes with the necessary and appropriate gifts (using the checklist which can be downloaded below) and bring to the church by the END OF OCTOBER at the latest as they need to be collected and sent out to the recipients in time for Christmas!

You can see from the campaign video here, just how much it means to people, this is the official Blythswood Care Shoebox appeal 2018, entitled “Bring Some Happiness To Someone In Need This Christmas”:
We were delighted that last year we donated 77 show boxes and 3 large bags stuffed with hats, scarves and gloves. Although was a fantastic effort we would love to beat it and maybe even get up to 100 WITH YOUR HELP!
