1st Clevedon Scout Group runs a local Christmas Card postal service for Clevedon residents each year. The money raised from this event is often in excess of £1000, which helps to keep the Scout Group running and to maintain the various activities we offer all our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
Many businesses in Clevedon support us each year by selling our Scout Christmas Stamps and having one of our Scout Christmas Post Boxes in their shop. Throughout December the Scout Group collects, sorts and delivers Christmas Cards, and this is where we need to ask you and your children for help and support.
For this fundraiser to be a success this year we need help in the following way
CHRISTMAS POST BOXES AT LOCAL RETAILERS
Christmas Post Boxes and Stamps are being delivered to the retailers that support our service. There are approximately 20 venues across Clevedon, details of which can be seen in the following images and will be posted on our facebook page soon:
HELP TO COLLECT THE POST FROM THE RETAILERS
We would be grateful for volunteers to collect the Christmas Cards from the retailers and drop them to either the Scout Hall or a member of the Christmas Post Team. The following dates are the collection dates:
- Monday 4th December & Monday 11th December
- Friday 8th December & Friday 15th December
HELP SORT THE POST
The upstairs meeting room becomes our sorting office from the beginning of December. Here the Christmas Cards are franked and then sorted into their delivery round. This years sorting dates are:
- Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th – Scout Hut and post sorting room open from 6pm
- Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th – Scout Hut and post sorting room open from 6.30pm
- Saturday 9th and Saturday 16th – from 9.30 am
SIGN UP TO A DELIVERY ROUND AND HELP DELIVER THE POST
A board will be placed in the entrance hall on Monday 27th November, where you or your son/daughter can sign up to a Christmas Card delivery round. The Christmas Cards will be sorted into the delivery rounds and available for you to collect from the sorting room on most nights that there is a Beaver, Cub or Scout Meeting taking place.
How do I sign up to help out? – Members of our Christmas post team will be available to answer questions and take your details at the Scout Hall when meetings are being held during the week beginning Monday 27th November.
Please help us to make this another successful year for the group and offer a great service to the people of Clevedon that support us.
Thank you from your Beaver, Cub & Scout Leaders
