The Annual Christmas Shoe Box Appeal.
Boxes will be collected for Blythswood Care, a Christian charity based in Scotland.

In 2016 the charity distributed 121,474 boxes (4% more than in 2015) to children and adults in countries of Eastern Europe and Pakistan.

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. These leaflets will be available in St. Andrew's church, or from Ginny Smith (250997) or Jackie de Ronde (251355); you can also download a PDF version from the website.

If you would like to know more, go to www.shoeboxappeal.org or ring Ginny or Jackie.
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.
EMPTY shoeboxes are very welcome.
