Using the Wirral Charity Post to send your Christmas Cards

Over £600,000 donated to other local
charities since 1982

Post Your Christmas Cards before the 13th December

Each year Wirral Scouts and Guides sort and deliver thousands of Christmas cards to households across the Wirral peninsula, giving thousands of pounds to local charities along the way

Using the Wirral Charity Post couldn't be easier, just follow these easy steps:

  • Work out how many of your friends and family live on the Wirral and check they live within our delivery area, you can find out where we deliver by clicking here
  • Buy your Charity Post Stamps from one of our shops across the Wirral. Remember they only cost £1.50 for a strip of 5 self-adhesive stamps, and you will need one stamp for every card you want to send. All profits are used to support Scouting and Guiding on the Wirral and each year we also pass on a substantial proportion of the profits to other Wirral based Charities.We are very proud of the fact that, from small beginnings in 1982, by 2014 we have donated over £550,000 to over 200 different Wirral Charities!

  • Once you have bought your stamps, check you're only sending Christmas Cards (we're not allowed to deliver non Christmas mail) and stick a stamp to each card you want to send.
  • Please make sure you have written clearly and discernibly (please – no gold ink on gold envelopes, silver ink on silver envelopes etc.!!!) and that you write the full address of the person you are sending the card to, including their post code.
  • Post your cards in one of our special post boxes, usually found in the same shops that sell our stamps. Please Do Not Post cards with our stamps in Royal Mail Post Boxes as the Royal Mail will charge the recipients to collect them from a Collection Point.
  • Sit back and let the Scouts and Guides do the rest!
