Home > Shoeboxes


The Shoe Box appeal runs throughout the year but really gets going in September. We work in partnership with Blythswood Care. We collect anything from small donations of soap to larger ones of a full shoe box or 300 facecloths. We also greatly appreciate donations towards the cost of transporting the boxes to deserving children which is £3.00 per box. There are usually two coffee morning during the year to help out with postage.

We have an army of knitters who supply us with hats, gloves and scarves, hand puppets, pencil cases, handbags with purses and finger puppets.

A fantastic team organise shoe box wrapping evenings in the Summer months and meet on Thursday evenings in the Autumn to fill the shoe boxes. We also spend two weekends in November checking filled shoe boxes for Blythswood received from other organisations.
