2020: Crowborough Scouts have reluctantly taken the decision not to run their annual Christmas Card delivery service this year because of the pandemic.
They are letting their supporters know they can support them by making any Amazon purchases they were intending to make anyway, after first clicking on their Amazon Smile link. Amazon donate 0.5% of eligible purchases to your chosen charity. Please note it only applies to products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation”. Click for more information about how Amazon Smile works.
The other link on their poster is for Easy Fundraising, which works in a similar way with lots on online retailers. How Easy Shopping works. The percentage given to charity varies for each retailer and sometimes also which product range. Friends of Fermor School and Taylor Made Dreams are also part of the Easy Fundraising scheme.
Original article: Once again this year 1st Crowborough Scouts are offering to deliver your Christmas cards to friends and family members living in Crowborough and Jarvis Brook.
Cards can be posted from 3rd December.
The cost to posting a card is 35p, and you take your cards at one of four locations in the town:
- Santander Bank in the High Street
- Tester and Jones, London Road
- Jarvis Brook Bakery, Crowborough Hill
- United Church, Croft Road
The annual scheme raises valuable funds towards equipment and activities for the Scouts.
Last collection is 3.30pm on Wednesday 12th December. Deliveries will start from 15th December.
