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.
You can see from the campaign video here, just how much it means to people, this is the official Blythswood Care Shoebox appeal 2019, entitled “Why not fill a shoebox for someone in need and bring a smile this Christmas”:
We were delighted that in 2018 we were able to donate 83 show boxes and 3 large bags stuffed with hats, scarves and gloves. Many thanks to everyone who donated! With your help perhaps we can send even more this year!
