Blythswood Care in Caol would like to thank everyone who donated in any way to its extremely successful Shoe Box Appeal in 2018.

On behalf of the organisation, Barbara and Kenny Matheson wish to thank everyone’s generosity – 727 filled and sorted shoe boxes were sent to the organisation’s depot at Deephaven, Evanton, Ross-shire.

These boxes, together with 107,073 further boxes collected throughout the UK have now been transporter and distributed to many thousands of needy people across Eastern Europe from Ukraine to Albania. After 25 years of Blythswoods Shoe Box Appeal there is no doubt that these boxes are appreciated more than anyone who donated can ever imagine. Thanks to everyone who helped the Caol branch achieve this remarkable result.
