Scouts Christmas Post

The Scouts are offering their special Christmas postal service for 2016.

Cost will be only 25p per card – Please put your cards and money together in the special Scout Xmas Post boxes.

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

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 30 years and is now run by eleven 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,
