Grantham Scouts are once again preparing to deliver Christmas cards.

Since starting in 1993, they have delivered nearly 340,000 cards, raising approximately £45,000 for local Scouts groups and projects.

They deliver within the Grantham NG31 area, plus Barrowby, Great Gonerby, Harlaxton, Ancaster, Colsterworth and Bottesford. They do not deliver elsewhere.

From Monday, the special ‘scout stamps’ and posting boxes will be at the following outlets: Barrowby Gate Pharmacy, Winchester Road; McColls, New Beacon Road; The Melton Building Society, High Street; G. Skinner & Sons Butchers, Barrowby; Coversure Insurance, Conduit Lane; Grantham Library, Isaac Newton Shopping Centre; Asda, Union Street; Day-Today News, Rushcliffe Road; Cards for Good Causes, The George Centre; John Beaty Motors, Castlegate; and Pizzini, High Street, Bottesford.

The stamps remain only 20p each, except for large cards and calendars which will be 40p each. Deliveries will commence from the first week in December.
