What is the purpose of Scout post?
It is used by scouts as a fundraising opportunity. Scouts have to sell stamps in an allocated area of Cardiff, they have to collect the cards in their own special scout collection bins ( DO NOT USE ROYAL MAIL BOXES) sort them and distribute all the cards before Christmas.
When is the last day for posting Scout Stamps?
The last posting day is the 3rd December to allow the scouts a week to sort before delivering cards on the weekend of the 8/9th December and the 15 & 16th December.
What are we raising funds for ?
We are giving the opportunity to participating members of the Unit 96 World Jamboree Unit to get involved with our Scout Post in order to raise money towards their Jamboree in 2019.
