This year will see the annual Shoe Box Appeal again, but it will take a slightly different path to other years. It has been decided, in the local area, to collect the boxes for Blythswood Care, a Christian charity based in Scotland; it distributed 115,576 boxes in 2015.
For those who enjoy filling a shoe box with 'goodies' for needy children, nothing very much needs to change.
The leaflets from Blythswood Care are clear and just need to be read carefully to note the few changes. One difference is that it is possible to fill a box with an adult or older teenager in mind; this might make it easier for some.
Ginny Smith will be coordinating the appeal at our Primary School and Jackie de Ronde will be doing the same at St. Andrew's church. Due to the closure of the 'old' Post Office we now do not have that venue for the distribution of leaflets; they will, however, be available in St. Andrew's church and from Ginny and Jackie.
If you would like to know more, please go to www.shoeboxappeal.org or ring Ginny on 250997 or Jackie on 251355.
Completed boxes can be delivered to the OSR 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 shoe boxes very welcome.
