The 2013 Shoe Box Appeal is underway. This is the 20th anniversary of Blythswood running the appeal and over 1.6 Million boxes have been donated and distributed through the years.
Co la deug eile! Another fortnight to donate a shoe box with gifts.
An uridh – Last year 100 boxes! This year we would like to beat our target!

“You can help us this year by filling a box yourself or as part of your church, school or other organisations you belong to. It’s very easy to put some basic items together; you could even do this with your work colleagues.
It’s not difficult to choose gifts for someone who has so little. Things we take for granted can often be luxuries for people living in desperate poverty.
Boxes will go to Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Pakistan, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine this year.
By filling a shoebox you can bring some joy and laughter to someone this Christmas.
