The Sunday School will once again be collecting for the Blythswood Shoebox Appeal for Christmas 2019 and are looking for your support.

You will now be aware of the excellent work that Blythswood carry out in Eastern Europe and the shoeboxes which we send as a gift at Christmas are gratefully received by all at this time.

As in the past strong empty shoeboxes with separate lids are required and can be left in the Church Hall. Any monetary donations please pass on to Sunday School Leaders or CW.

The monies gathered will be used to purchase the contents for the boxes which will then be packed by willing volunteers. This year we are starting to collect the monies in September – due to the fact that these boxes have to be through to the Blythswood depot in Glasgow for the first week in November (a big undertaking for the volunteers) as the boxes then travel overland by lorry to their destinations.

In anticipation of your continued support and generosity, many thanks.
