Scout Post

2016 is the 29th year of our Christmas Post service and this year sees the continued expansion of the service which now operates between Bridport,
Dorchester and surrounding villages. Last year we delivered approximately 40,000 cards across the District.

Yellow post-boxes are placed in shops at convenient locations in the participating areas where cards can be posted for less than half the price of a second class stamp (25p) between the 5th and 19th of December. Just drop your cards and your payment in the box and leave the rest to us.

We always need willing volunteers who are prepared to spend an afternoon delivering leaflets and three or four evenings delivering cards to a small area. We drop off the leaflets and the cards to your home so that you can deliver them to houses in your area. There are no fixed timings, you can choose your evenings (or days) to suit yourself.

People like to volunteer for this because the work they will do in this period provides a useful and popular community service as well as raising much needed funds to support their local Scout Groups. Our Christmas Post volunteers make a real difference to local young people and enjoy giving something back to their community.

If you would like to take part delivering the mail in one of our many delivery areas or by helping in the sorting office at Bridport or Dorchester, we would very much like to hear from you. 

Please contact Debbie, Scout Post Co-ordinator on 01305 852314 or scoutpost@dwdscouts.org.uk if you can spare a few hours and would like to be part of something special.
