The fundraising Christmas card collection and delivery service carried out by scouts across Ipswich is under way.

Any card can be sent anywhere within Ipswich for 25p. Cards can be left at drop-off points across the town until December 10 – and they will be delivered between December 11 and Christmas Eve.

The delivery areas are the Ipswich IP1-IP5 areas as well as Kesgrave, Rushmere, Martlesham Heath, Grundisburgh, Gt and Lt Bealings, Playford, Pinewood, Claydon, Gt Blakenham and Barham.

This service has been provided for 28 years and is now run by nine scout groups for which it is a major annual fundraising event.
