Christmas Post 2017 – how did we do? By Carl Steckerl on December 17, 2017 (updated April 13, 2022) In Christmas Post, Fundraising / 0 comments Thank you to everyone who made this another successful year. The Scout post has raised £1,831.19 for 1st Swindon Sea Scouts. Sales of stamps were bustling at Morrisons with 8,168 stamps sold, sorting was frantic and confusing at times at Gorse Hill (especially for those not being experts in Swindon streets!) and deliveries of 5,003 cards kept in good order in Haydon Wick by Catharine supported by members of the Beavers, Cubs, Scout and Explorer sections, leaders, parents and carers. Working with the other groups in Swindon North District and Swindon Ridgeway District for every stamp we sold we earned 10p and for every card delivered we received 17p. Stamp selling therefore raised £816.80, deliveries raised £850.51 and we recieved £163.88 in donations. The 1st Swindon Exec and all of the members of scouting in Swindon would like to thank Morrisons for allowing us to sell stamps again and everyone for their help and time in supporting the sales of stamps, sorting of the envelopes and delivery of all of the cards. This now just leaves us to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and see you all in 2018!
