Blythswood Shoebox Appeal 2018

Please join us in making up shoeboxes for Blythswood to give out to families, children, men and women in Eastern European countries living in poverty and often forgotten.  Showing  that someone cares enough to send a shoebox to them makes a huge difference. Basic gifts make a big difference to people who, after paying bills, have little to live on and no money for extras. The smell of a lovely bar of soap, the household candles which can save on electricity, the warm hats or gloves, the colouring books, pencils, small toys which can bring fun and laughter. Sweets are a real treat to be shared.
Nothing like this will solve poverty but it will bring joy and happiness into people’s lives.
Please look at the video link down below .
Please pick up a leaflet from inside the door in the Church café and check the list carefully for what is allowed and needed. Remember to use a standard shoebox for easiness of packing. No boot boxes please.
Shoeboxes can be brought to our All Age Service on Sunday 4th November at 10:30 am followed by Brunch or alternatively brought to the cafe the week beginning 30th October. No boxes after 4th November please.
