Our army of volunteers and fantastic local businesses helped us to raise over £900 for 4th Ashby Scout Group.
Local businesses, The Card Cottage in Market Street, Ashby, Daybreak Stores in Packington, the Tourist Information Centre and Abbey Stores all sold stamps and collected cards for local delivery. The Co-op on Derby Road kindly let us have a stall selling stamps and collecting cards at the weekend too. Promotion of this event was made possible by our friends at Ashby Life.
Families of the beavers, cubs and scouts all took a few streets and delivered the cards which were swiftly sorted by our Scout Leaders.
In all, over 2,000 cards were delivered in Ashby, Packington, Smisby and Shellbrook.
Group Scout Leader, Jon Bloor, said “I hope that the beavers, cubs and scouts were able to share some Christmas cheer and also help people to save money. With their support, we’ll be back next year, as we have been doing this every Christmas since 1982”.
