Last push for Wirral Charity Post

A billboard for the Wirral Scout & Guide Christmas Scout PostRadio Clatterbridge is set to benefit from this year's Wirral Scout & Guide Christmas Post - but only if people make an effort to buy charity stamps for their cards this year.

With the postal deadline fast approaching, a last minute push is taking place to ensure everyone who needs to use the service does so in time.

All Christmas cards need to be sent by Wednesday 13th December 2017.

The charity post was set up 35 years ago to deliver Christmas cards across Wirral in support of local charities.

Since then, in excess of £550,000 has been donated to more than 200 good causes.

Profits also support Scouting and Guiding across Wirral.

"We really appreciate your support again. You are giving back to your community." - Emily Sault

46 Scout groups, five Guide disticts and three Ranger units now work together to sell the special stamps and deliver cards in time for the big day.

This year, Radio Clatterbridge is one of 18 local charities likely to receive a donation from the proceeds.

The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity will also benefit.

Her advice included:

Stamps costing £1.50 for a strip of five can be bought from outlets including Claire House, Wirral Hospice St John's, the RVS Shop in Clatterbridge Hospital and Claremont Farm Shop.
