Blythswood care is a Scottish based charity which supplies aid – food, clothes, medical equipment etc. – to people in need in Albania, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Romania and Serbia. Our Club has supported their work for several years now by getting involved in the Christmas Shoebox appeal.
Each year we collect gloves, scarves, hats, toiletries, sweets, toothbrushes and toothpaste, pencils and notebooks and many more items for women and girls. These are then packed in colourfully wrapped shoeboxes and delivered to the charity who will arrange for them to go to those most in need.
Two members volunteer with the charity, helping to sort donated items at the warehouse in Hillington on a weekly basis.
In 202, the charity was able to deliver some filled shoeboxes, so we contributed a few , but were able to provide many more in 2021
