COVID-19: Update – October 2020

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you. Trust in the Lord for ever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal.” Isaiah 26: 3-4

We continue to pray that our staff, volunteers and supporters will keep safe and well as another wave of the pandemic emerges. It is important to follow Government guidelines using PPE where appropriate and washing hands and maintaining social distancing measures.

Twenty of our shops in Scotland and our nine shops in Ireland are now open and trading well. We are so grateful to the general public who have been very generous, supplying donations into our shops. Deephaven and Glasgow Depots are also open, with the sorting and warehouse teams working hard to process donations. Regular loads of recycling are also going out again.

Collections and delivering of furniture remain contactless, from outside the customer or donor’s home at present.

Our foodbanks in Scotland and our overseas projects continue thanks to the sacrificial giving of our faithful supporters. We have launched our Annual Shoe Box Appeal and all of the North of Scotland sorting will be undertaken at Unit 3, 33 Harbour Road, Inverness IV1 1UG. Please keep up-to-date through Blythswood Care’s website and Facebook pages on news of the other sort stations and collection points.

Please continue to pray with us for friends and colleagues who are unwell at this time.

We hugely appreciate your support as we continue our activities within current restrictions. We will give further update as matters progress.

May we all trust in the Lord who is able to sustain us, through His faithfulness, in these challenging days.
