Girvan stop for Blythswood

With spring in the air at last and summer on the way it’s time to go through the wardrobe and make space for all the latest fashions for 2013.

Blythswood Care is happy to help you out, by taking the clothes you want to replace, giving them a new lease of life in their charity shops, and helping them find their way to another home.

The charity also take books, DVDs, bric a brac and small items of furniture.

The lorry stops at Girvan Harbour from 3.30pm to 4pm on Tuesday May 13.

The regular visits ensure a personal handover to Blythswood and donors can be confident that the donated goods will be used for the benefit of the charity.

Blythswood Care is a Christian charity, based in Scotland. Many people know of the work through the Shoe Box Appeal.

But, throughout the year, Blythswood distributes relief aid, supports social care projects, works to alleviate child poverty and carries out gospel mission work.

Blythswood has worked in Eastern Europe for more than 20 years and now also works in India and Africa.

Margaret Tooth, area fundraising manager, said: “We can take most things to sell in our shops or send away as aid.

“Our regular supporters enjoy bringing goods to the lorry in the knowledge that they are helping us to make a difference.

“If you are unsure whether something would be of use, the driver can advise you.”
