The collection dates for this years

Scouts Christmas Post

Wednesday 25th November 2015 until Wednesday 9th December 2015

The Scouts are offering their special Christmas postal service for 2015.

Cost will be only 25p per card – 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 29 years and is now run by ten 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), Kesgrave, Rushmere, Martlesham Heath, Grundisburgh,

Gt and Lt Bealings, Playford, Pinewood, Claydon, Gt Blakenham and Barham

Elsewhere, to find out where you can post your cards please use our “Collection point checker
