Hear from some of our staff…

Working at Blythswood is so rewarding. The work we are doing contributes to humanitarian needs around the world. Projects like our Shoe Box Appeal bring so much joy to others, it’s a huge part of why I love my job.

Kelly Simpson

The donations we receive are astounding. You can have an item in your hand and stop and think about its journey and how it will receive a second life. The revenue will then go to help another person and change their lives. It’s a privilege to be involved.

Paul Kubon

Through visiting some of our projects I have experienced first hand the difference our amazing supporters make. I feel privileged to work for a Christian organisation where God is central to not just what we do but more importantly who we are.
