Scouts prepared to help at Christmas

Belper Scouts are once again helping people be prepared for Christmas, by ensuring their cards are delivered on time.

Shops and churches displaying “Stamp and Deliver” posters, have now started selling the special stamps in town and the now familiar yellow posting boxes are all set up. Collections will be made from December 3 to 17. Stamps cost 20 pence , with almost 19 pence donated to Scout Groups.

Belper Scouts expect to benefit by at least £1,500 this year with the rest going to Sight Support Derbyshire.
