Fairlie Parish Church have offered sincere thanks to all who supported this year's Blythswood Shoebox appeal in the village.

Thanks go to anyone who helped in any way, by knitting, filling boxes, donating items and money, helping fill and sort and tidy away.

The village primary school also took part by donating boxes and items, and coming down to the church and helping the team to fill more boxes.

These are sent to the children and adults in Kosovo and Moldova with love and good wishes for a 'Happy Christmas'.

The church newsletter stated: "This is a wonderful effort from such a small village and its friends. Thank you!"
