For those who enjoy filling a shoe box for needy children, an older teenager or adult, details can be found in the leaflets from Blythswood Care.

Completed boxes can be delivered to the Old School Room during 'Drop-In' (2nd & 4th Tuesday from 10.30 — 12.00) or during a Sunday service at St. Andrew's.

Please have your box ready by the last week in October, but earlier delivery is very welcome.
