Blythswood Care

Blythswood careBlythswood Care combines the Christian message with practical help for those in need at home and abroad. Whether through filled shoeboxes at Christmas, relief and development aid or social projects for young and old, we bring hope to thousands in Europe, Africa and Asia.

We are a Christian Charity helping people in need locally and globally, regardless of political or religious beliefs or ethnic origins.

The Perth Support Group fund raise at a local level and focus on their main activity of help co-ordinate filled Christmas Shoe Boxes.

Shoe-Box Appeal 2017

Thank you to everybody that supported this year’s appeal with 4,043 boxes custom checked and sent from Perth helping bring joy and smiles to the faces of poor people in Romania as they celebrated Christmas with the hope and love given by Jesus. We would ask you to “Make someone happy this Christmas” remembering that things we take for granted can often be luxuries for people living in desperate poverty when they receive a gift filled shoe box.

The Support Group started organising a local collection and Custom Checking in 2001 since then nearly 80,000 gift filled shoe boxes have been sent from Perth to Romania.
