Hear from some of our staff…

Kelly Simpson

Shop Manager

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.

Paul Kubon

Operations Development/H&S Officer

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.

James McGillivray

Financial Assistant

Working for Blythswood is incredibly rewarding, being able to see the generosity of others is truly inspiring. It is a privilege to be part of an Christian organisation that seeks to promote God’s word round the world in many different ways.

Mairi McHardy

Prayer & Christian Literature Administrator

God’s Word, and prayer, have been vital to Blythswood’s work from the start. I am so grateful for the opportunity my role provides to send Christian literature across the UK and overseas and to update supporters on how to pray for the ongoing work.
