Che­sham scouts

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - PICTURE SPECIAL -

Eight-year-old Tris­tan Wool­ven is swamped by let­ters; (in­set) Alex Hod­son, 13, Luke Tole, 12, and 11-year-old Robert Orr HUN­DREDS of Christ­mas cards have been de­liv­ered in the Che­sham and Amer­sham area thanks to hard­work­ing scouts.

Scouts in Che­sham and Amer­sham have had a busy few weeks sort­ing and de­liv­er­ing cards to peo­ple in the towns and sur­round­ing vil­lages as part of Scout Post.

Peo­ple who wanted to send cards to loved ones in the area could buy a ‘scout stamp’ for 25p from par­tic­i­pat­ing out­lets and pop the card in the store’s scout post­box.

The an­nual scheme raises money for the scout groups tak­ing part, in­clud­ing 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Che­sham Scout Groups, 2nd Amer­sham Common Scout Group and Gla­di­a­tor Ex­plorer Unit.

The 2nd Amer­sham Common Scout Group had its first sort­ing ses­sion at St John’s Methodist Church in Wood­side Road, Amer­sham, on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 13, when scouts sorted more than 1,000 cards for Amer­sham alone.

It was ex­pected they would have even more cards to sort in the sec­ond ses­sion on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 19.

Cor­rectly ad­dressed cards will be de­liv­ered by to­day (Christ­mas Eve).
