Blythswood Care

Blythswood Care

As part of our commitment to care for the most vulnerable in our world, each year we fill shoeboxes for Blythswood Care. The shoeboxes are filled with a variety of small gifts for a child or adult. Shoeboxes filled by schoolchildren and church folk from all over the Kirkcaldy area. After a short service of worship they are loaded onto a Blythswood Care van and are on their way to Albania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Romania, Serbia and the Ukraine in Eastern Europe – all in time for distribution for Christmas. These small gifts bring a big smile to the faces of the people who receive them.

Each month a Blythswood Care van visits Kirkcaldy to collect donations of clothing, bric-a-brac and small items of furniture. The van can be found at the lorry park on the Esplanade, usually on the third Wednesday of the month from 10.45am-11.30am. (See website for dates).
