Blythswood Care Shoebox Appeal – 2016

shoebox-2016aOne of our main charitable commitments, and certainly the largest, is to the Blythswood Care Christmas Shoe box Appeal. This appeal provides gifts at Christmas time to some of the world’s most disadvantaged people, many of them children. For two weeks each November we act as the main shoe box sorting centre for Edinburgh and SE Scotland, handling around 7,000 shoe boxes during the campaign. You can help, either by donating a shoe box (or shoe boxes…) or by volunteering to help as a sorter. Please click on the menu subheadings to find out more.


The following 2016 video is a compilation of comments by James Campbell, chief executive of Blythswood Care, and Christmas distribution of shoe boxes in Romania.
