Mail Delivery 2016
Halesworth and Holton
The Halesworth Lions has passed on the Christmas Mail delivery
to Halesworth Scout Group giving us the chance to serve our
community and to earn much needed funds.
The time table is: (subject to change)
18 to 20 November - Post Boxes delivered to the shops.
14 December – Post Boxes will be collected.
14/15 December – Final and Major sort of post.
16 to 21– Delivery of post.
collection of post and donations (possibly on a daily basis).
weekly sort, possibly at weekends or during the week into
the major eight area that have been used by the Lions.
final sort on 14 and 15 and allocating post into rounds.
to 21 delivery of post.
I have not got a final list of shops but I will let you know
as soon as I know myself.
Volunteers can be Explorer Scouts, Scouts, (Cub Scouts and Beavers
are welcome to help but they must be accompanied by an adult),
parents, grandparents, friends of scouting and leaders (but
don’t let us rely on leaders for leading fund raising
all the time). If anyone would like to step forward and help
in the co-ordination of this project I would be really helpful.
So can you let me know:
When you can deliver post in the week before Christmas and
the streets you are able to do.
you can collect from the post boxes and the days that you
can do this
When you are able to do the weekly mini-sorts
When you are available to do the Final Sort
This sounds a lot of work, and it is. I have had a number of
volunteers that shows that we can make this a successful event.
If every family helps then the work per person in minimal, conceptually
we have four times the manpower of the Lions. And don’t
forget to rope others in to help. I am!
This is a wonderful project and as well as boosting our fund
it will present a high profile of Scouting to the community.
