Normally at this time of year we gather for an evening in the church of wrapping and packing shoeboxes that will be distributed to poverty hit communities throughout Eastern Europe by Blythswood Care. Sadly this year we won’t be able to do it together in the church hall but we would love for you to take part by wrapping & packing boxes at home.

Download the box checklist to make sure you have included the required items and to give you suggestions of other good items to include in the packages.

If you are able to drop of completed boxes to the church building by the end of October we will take them to the Hillington drop off depot all together. Or if you aren’t able to drop them off at the church, just get in touch. Carina would love to visit your doorstep to pick them up from you! email: or phone 0141 357 3236. If you need empty shoeboxes for filling we have quite a few at the church which can be picked up or delivered to you. Many thanks for your continued support of the Shoe Box Appeal
