Announcing the 20p Christmas Card Postal Service

November 11, 2014

20p Christmas Post
5 Scout Groups and 2 Guide Companies from the Abingdon area run the 20p Christmas Post in Abingdon, Northcourt, Radley and Shippon.20p Christmas Post
Last year they collected, sorted and delivered about 6400 cards.

They have been running the service for 20 years.

They have 2 ’sort’ evenings, the first about a week before the closing date and the other on the closing day.   Around 30-50 people help with the sorting.  They don’t deliver any cards until after the second sort.

Each group is allocated an area of Abingdon, Northcourt, Shippon or Radley to deliver. They then split their cards into rounds of about 50-100 cards. This means that about 100 youngsters, many accompanied by parents, deliver the cards before Christmas.
