The Wirral Scout & Guide Charity Post was founded in 1982 to deliver Christmas cards across the Wirral in support of local charities. It is a co-operative venture between 46 Scout Groups, 5 Guide Disticts and 3 Ranger Units who sell stamps to raise money and deliver Christmas Cards across the Wirral in time for Christmas each year.

Look out for the Red Postbox!

This year, to help our participating shops stand out, we're producing a distinctive red postbox symbol to be displayed in shop windows. That means, wherever you see our red postbox you know you can buy stamps and post your cards. (Note:  All our outlets should be showing our official red postbox symbol but some will actually be using our original circular green bins - we don't have enough red bins for everybody!)  Do NOT post in Royal Mail Boxes which also happen to be red!

Post your cards by midday 13th December

Our postboxes will be open across the Wirral from the 18th November until midday 13th December, you can find your nearest shop by clicking here

Are you a #WirralPostie?

We loved looking through your photos on social media last year and we're asking you all to join in again. Please encourage as many of our volunteers to help us spread the word about the Wirral Scout & Guide Christmas post through sharing thier photos with the hashtag #WirralPostie.

It's really easy to join in, just take a photo of yourself taking part in the post this year and then upload your picture to Twitter/Facebook/Instagram and tag it with the hashtag #WirralPostie

You could be selling stamps, sorting cards within your group or at the main sorting office or even out on your delivery round, we want to see as many pictures of our great volunteers out and about this year so get sharing!

We'll then re-post the best pictures here on our website and re-tweet them on our twitter stream.

*Please ensure when taking group selfies that you have permission from all parents of those young people featured in the photographs before sharing them on social media
