The Wirral Scout & Guide Charity Post is pretty much what it says on the tin! It is a co-operative venture between 46 Scout Groups, 2 Guide Units, 3 Ranger Units and 5 Guide Districts who normally deliver Christmas Cards throughout the Wirral, raising money for charity.
2020 will be the first year since our launch in 1982 that we have been unable to deliver cards through letterboxes due to the various regulations restricting our activities during the current pandemic. However, for this year only (hopefully!), we are introducing a free e-Card scheme which will enable users to send cards to an E-Mail address anywhere in the world. Although the service is offered entirely free of charge, we are hoping that users may feel that they are able to donate at least some of their savings in postage to the Scheme. Our participating Scout and Girlguiding Units are, like all other charities, struggling financially this year so every penny helps.
Since 1982 we have delivered over 20 million cards, raising over £3.3 million of which we have donated £720,589 to other Wirral based Charities.
We hope to be back to normal operations for Christmas 2021. Thank you for your continued support.
