THE Clackmannanshire Scouts will once again be delivering Christmas post throughout the county this holiday season.

Following on from last year's success, the little helpers will be out and about again this year, with stamps available from Friday onwards.

The Scouts will be covering all addresses in Alloa, Alva, Clackmannan, Dollar, Fishcross, Kincardine, Menstrie, Muckhart, Sauchie, Tullibody, Tillicoultry, and Coalsnaughton.

John Spruce, Scout Post coordinator in the Wee County, said: “For over twenty-five years, Clackmannanshire Scouts have been helping people out during the Christmas period by delivering Christmas post.

"This activity is a great fundraising scheme as well as being of real benefit to our community.

"The Scout Post in Clackmannanshire has been very successful and we are hoping that the general public will be supporting us again this year.

"Last year we delivered over 10,000 cards. We would like to thank all those who support us in this venture, especially the shops selling our stamps.”

The stamps are still only 35p each, saving 23p per card on 2nd class standard size.

There are no complicated size restrictions and all cards are the same price.

Deliveries will commence in mid-December and the last date for posting is 5pm on, Friday, December 14, to allow delivery in time for Christmas.
