Thursday 9th

Another assortment of helpers from the community, another team from RBS, another successful sorting day with 1,214 shoeboxes completed.

What was different to other days was a visit from the Moderator to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Dr. Derek Browning, who took a particular interest in the work of the sorting centre at Craigmillar Park and our contribution to the annual Blythswood Care ShoeBox Appeal. The Moderator toured the sorting hall and packing station and chatted with the volunteers, where he was presented with his own specially packed shoebox.

We have a big delivery coming in tomorrow so I’m keen to have more helpers – check the main shoebox menu and recent posts for details.
