Blythswood Shoe Box Appeal
Blackford sent 80 shoe boxes and 30 blankets to the appeal this year. Many, many thanks to those who have donated items, wool for the knitting, those who have knitted and the many helpers who wrapped the boxes in Christmas paper and helped with the packing of the boxes. We have donations of knitted items already; so, the 2020 appeal has begun.
