“Since 1966, Blythswood Care has combined the Christian message with practical help for those in need. Whether through filled shoeboxes at Christmas, relief and development aid or social projects for young and old, Blythswood brings hope to thousands in Europe, Africa and Asia. Blythswood is committed to long-term care projects in Romania, enabling disadvantaged children and young people fulfil their potential. A founding member of Global Hand, Blythswood cooperates with likeminded charities around the world, supporting the work of local care professionals who best know the needs of their communities. For every £1 donated, Blythswood delivers more than £5 worth of aid. For every employee, Blythswood has more than 10 volunteers. With the support of people like you, Blythswood provides Christian care for body and soul.”
During November and December 2010 over 118,000 shoeboxes were checked, sorted, packed up and sent to the following countries; Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Pakistan, Romania and Serbia.
Our church recogises the great work which is being carried by Blythswood and have been involved in the Blythswood Shoebox appeal for many years now.
