Scouts Charity Christmas Post box in Formby is back!

Formby Scouts have been running the Formby Scout CHRISTMAS Post for the last 35 years in Formby and it is our principal fund raising activity. A proportion of what is raised goes to local charitable causes each year. The post boxes are in the local shops, who volunteer to help us, from the last Friday in November, along with the Scout Stamps, which are also available from our stall in the village.

A list of the participating shops can be found below. The co-ordination of the collections, sorting of cards and the house to house deliveries are carried out by Scout, Cub and Beaver children, accompanied by their parents and volunteers from Holy Trinity church and other friends in the Formby, Freshfield and Hightown community.

Our deliveries are to Formby, Freshfield, Hightown, Ince Blundell and the Altcar area (although one year we did receive post for Johannesburg!). i must emphasize that this is a Scout run post and it has no connection what so ever with the Royal Mail, and cards with Scout stamps on should not be put in to Royal Mail boxes, nor Royal Mails stamps used on Scout cards.

The 4th Formby (Holy Trinity) Scout Group are rolling out their Charity Christmas Post again this year.

This is very popular and is a huge help for our local Scouts group. Instead of using a conventional stamp, you buy a scout stamp and put it on your cards and post into the scouts letterboxes provided. Post boxes and stamps are distributed to the participating shops at the end of November and we are very grateful to those shops who sell the stamps for us.

The cards are collected from the shops regularly, then sorted into roads and then distributed to the Scouts and volunteers in their area to deliver - after the final post. LAST POST is 15TH DECEMBER AT 5PM
