Scouts Christmas Post

Post Boxes Now Closed!

Tuesday 25th November 2014 – Wednesday 10th December 2014

Would you like to save money and help a good cause?

The Scouts are offering their special Christmas postal service for 2014.

Cost will be only 25p per card (Any Size) – Please put your cards and money together in the boxes.

 This offers fantastic value for money compared to the ever increasing prices of Royal Mail.

The Scout Groups listed below will deliver your Christmas cards by Christmas Eve.

This service has been provided for 28th years and is now run by nine scout group’s to which it is a major annual fundraising event, requiring hours of work by the Leaders and Parents of the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Explorers within each group. Plus, of course, a band of dedicated helpers. Scout Groups from Ipswich, Claydon, Kesgrave, Martlesham & Grundisburgh will be delivering cards in and around Ipswich (Postcodes IP1 – IP5) and Kesgrave, Rushmere, Martlesham Heath, Grundisburgh, Gt and Lt Bealings, Playford, Pinewood, Claydon, Gt Blakenham and Barham. To find out where you can post your cards please use our “Collection point checker” and to check that we deliver to a particular road please use our “Road Delivery Checker“.

We CANNOT deliver to any other location.

Please write the full address with postcode and any special instructions on the envelope clearly.

Cards need to be dropped into one of the collection boxes by Wednesday 10th December 2014 and deliveries will then begin on Thursday 11th December 2014 and will all be completed by Christmas Eve.

“We endeavour to deliver all the cards we receive that have a full address. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supports our Scout Groups by using the service and especially the businesses which allow our boxes to be placed in their premises and hope that ever more people will give us a try.”

Thanks in advance for your support for this valuable fund-raising activity.
