Anna Ritchie School have managed to fill 28 shoeboxes for the Blythswood Care Appeal.

The Shoe Box appeal is an annual donation of simple items such as toothpaste and a toothbrush to pens and a notepad.

The wrapped and ready shoeboxes will be sent to children, teenagers and adults in countries such as Albania, Pakistan and Kosovo.

Anna Ritchie School pupils took their boxes to the collection truck which was located next to the old Focus DIY shop as part of a public collection on Thursday.

The shoe box appeal aims to bring a smile to those in need at Christmas.
