Some 500,000 Christmas cards are usually hand sorted and delivered by our members and volunteers but for the third year running the Scout post scheme has been cancelled.
Unfortunately, we have concerns for our Scout Groups and volunteers being able to sort and deliver the post so have made the decision not to run it this year.
Scout Post normally brings in around £150k each year to support Scouting in our 50+ groups with 4,000 members. This needed income helps to run our adventurous programme and the upkeep of our buildings and transport.”
With Scout Post not taking place this year, we are calling on the public to help us with fundraising so that our groups are able to continue to carry out the excellent work they do. Please share our posts on social media and if possible, make a donation where you can specify a group for your donation to be allocated to.
On behalf of Cardiff and Vale Scouts we would like to thank all those that have supported Scout Post over the years and to make it the success it is.
Scout Post 2023
To ensure the scheme can run next year we need additional support to help cover some areas across Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. Could your organisation or group do with a boost in income?
We have a number of ways for a group or organisation to get involved:
a) Sell stamps, Main Sort, Own Area Sort and Deliver
b) Own Area Sort and Deliver
c) Just Deliver
d) Some other way
