Blyswood Care Christmas Shoebox Appeal

This is the 30th year of the Christmas Shoebox appeal to which Killearn Kirk members have given generously over the years.  38 shoeboxes were donated from members of Killearn.

Since the first Shoe Box Appeal in 1993 more than 2.5 million boxes – each one different, each one personal, each one an expression of your care and kindness towards a stranger in need. Filled with small, practical items such as toiletries, stationery, and clothing, the individually-wrapped boxes have been distributed in schools, hospitals, orphanages and care homes, and to households in very low income communities. Many have gone to people affected by the war in Ukraine.

A big thank you to all who contributed to this very worthwhile cause.
