Christmas Post – Summary 2016

This year we raised £596.22 with the Christmas Post, and delivered 2429 cards

This was 129 cards down on last year, but only £8.45 less money (with the card difference it should have been £25.80 short) so that was very good.

Thank you to all who helped and delivered .

Have a great Christmas and New Year

  • Card and news – Newsagents
  • Cobblers Bench
  • Tops
  • Scissors

We deliver to Melksham, Bowerhill and Berryfields.

Last day for Scout Christmas post is Thursday, 15th December.

Successful 2013 Christmas Post

Scouts, Cubs & Beavers with the help of parents delivered 2037 Christmas cards in less than perfect weather conditions.

The cards were all sorted on the 21st December and then distributed later that week with volunteers taking a few roads each.

This year was our second very successful year with an increase of around 500 extra cards compared to last year, raising a very healthy £460.

A huge Thank You to all the volunteers, young & old, who braved the rain to ensure delivery. We are looking forward to an even better year in 2014.
