Blythswood Charity Shop
Blythswood Charity Shop in Tain was opened in April 1993 in St. Duthus House, St Duthus Street. The premises comprise the main shop, a sorting/store room and toilet facilities.
The shop exists to sell second-hand clothes, shoes, books and bric-a-brac to raise money to help fund the International Aid Charity Blythswood’s vehicles taking aid to Eastern Europe and is manned by around 20 volunteers, each working a few hours per week.
The people of Tain benefit by being able to buy second-hand clothes very cheaply and by having an outlet for articles they can or no longer wish to use themselves.
