Scouts across Ipswich are today starting their annual Christmas card collection for people living within the town.

Any card can be sent anywhere within Ipswich for 22p. 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.

A full list of where cards can be left, and which areas can receive deliveries can be found online at www.scoutspostipswich.org.uk

The service was formally launched at the weekend with help from Ipswich Mayor Hamil Clarke and his consort Daisy Weekes who were joined by some of the helpers from the scout groups across the town.
