all the boxes ready and the volunteers, parents and young members
will all lend a hand to make sure that the cards are delivered
by Christmas Eve," one of the organisers, Sue Hunter, told

just under £1,000 all of which goes into the group
funds and helps to keep Scouting alive in our area. We are hoping
that 2014 will be another bumper year. We would like to take this
opportunity to thank everyone who supports our Scout Group by
using this service and especially the businesses who allow our
boxes to be placed in their premises."
