Christmas Shoe Boxes

More than a dozen members of Tiree Parish Church guild spent several hours filling shoe boxes with presents and wrapping them with Christmas paper before sending them off to children and poor adults in Eastern Europe.

The women worked tirelessly in the Resource Centre and filled an estimated 70 boxes for the recipients with items such as toys, toothpaste, warm gloves and hats, drawing pencils and pads, soap and sweets. The boxes were stacked for collection by Mark Armstrong who took them in the Wilson Carrier’s van to Oban where they were destined for the Blythswood shop before being sent off to Eastern Europe.
