Blythswood Care Update from Pat Anderson

Although the 2020 Shoe Box appeal did not go ahead as normal in November, the Braco ladies still did a good deal of knitting which was taken to Crieff to the Blythswood charity shop, which made its way, along with many more articles, despite Covid 19 regulations, to very needy children in Hungry. We know this was gratefully received. Knitting of any kind is still very much needed.  A useful garment is a snood.

The pattern is cast on 35 stitches, no. 9 needles, double knitting wool, knit 15 inches for youth size and 17 inches for adult size. Sew the ends together. Use any stitch you like, garter, moss, ribs or just make up what suits you. This is good for using up wool of many colours.
Squares are useful too, which can be put together for blankets.
Knitting is a great lockdown pastime for the remaining winter months.
There is no sign of the Crieff shop opening in the near future and the knitting will not go away until September/October, which gives us plenty time.

Whilst supporting our local suppliers, shops and trades is vitally important, I know over the past months many of us, who would not normally order online, have been grateful for the opportunity to have goods delivered when many outlets and shops were closed or had very restricted access.

Whenever you buy anything online – electrical goods, online groceries, DIY supplies, Christmas presents, your annual holiday (wishful thinking), car insurance renewal – you could be raising free donations for Ardoch Parish Church with Easyfundraising.

This is not something new and for a number of years now Ardoch Church members has used this site to collect donations.

There are over 4,000 shops and sites on board ready to make a donation – including John Lewis, Sainsburys, Tesco, M&S  Smile Amazon and it does not cost you a penny extra to help us raise funds.  Each donation may only amount to less than 50p but these small amounts accumulate and can become quite a significant sum.

There are no catches or hidden charges and Ardoch Parish Church will be most grateful for your donations.  The only thing you must remember to do is sign into the Easyfundraising site and click on the supplier from within the site.

To get started copy this link and register.

Every time you shop online, you must log in to Easyfundraising first , then find the site you want and start shopping. After you’ve checked out, the retailer will make a donation to Ardoch Parish Church at no extra cost to you whatsoever!

Thank you for your support.
