North Swindon MP Converts Community Office Into Sorting Office For Local Scout Post

 


North Swindon MP Justin Tomlinson’s Community Office was once again turned into a makeshift sorting office as the Scout Post came to town.

Every year local Scout groups co-ordinate a Christmas card delivery scheme; selling stamps and delivering cards to raise money for their groups. For the third year in a row Justin opened up his community office for them to sort their cards before they are then hand delivered by Scout volunteers.

The initiative raises over £1,000 for the Scouts, which will go towards local Scout Groups and their work helping local young people develop skills and take parts in a range of activities.

Justin took the opportunity to join the Scouts sorting the post as the last minute rush to beat the festive deadline approached.

Justin Tomlinson MP said: “The Scouts work so hard on the Christmas Post, and I am only too happy to help them. It is a great way for them to raise money and it was great to see how well supported it is by local residents.”
