The chance to enjoy the gift of giving through the Lewis Blythswood Show Box Appeal is nearing an end as the closing date for Shoe Box collections this Saturday, November 3rd, at 12 noon.

The annual appeal proves a huge success and it is hoped that 2012 will once again highlight the generosity of island residents.

The Shoe Box Appeal collection point is MacDonald’s Store – opposite the Sea Angling Club – which will be open on Thursday, November 1st from 3.45pm to 6pm; Friday, November 2nd from 3.45pm to 6.30pm; and on Saturday, November 3rd, from 10am to 12 noon.

Volunteers are also needed at the collection point to help sort out the Shoe Boxes and if you are able to give a few hours of your time to help, please contact Chris Martin on 01851 706143 or Charlie Nicolson on 01851 703325.
