Melvich Primary School and the surrounding community have once again been very generous, donating dozens of shoe boxes filled with gifts for Blythswood’s annual festive charity appeal.

A total of 69 packed and wrapped shoeboxes were uplifted from the school last Thursday and are destined to bring some Christmas cheer to impoverished families in Eastern Europe.

Local organisers of the annual Blythswood Shoebox Appeal in the Castletown area are also organising a chance to thank everyone who has helped with this year’s shoebox appeal there. A delicious Coffee & Cake hour at Castletown and Community Free Church will be held on Saturday, from 2-3pm, to which everyone will be welcome for a drink and chat.
