The 1st and 2nd Parkeston Scout Group will be busy fundraising and spreading Christmas cheer by delivering cards in the Harwich area for 20p per card.

Collection boxes at a range of community stores including local hair dressers, pet shops and general stores in the area will ensure the local community have an opportunity to help raise funds for local Scouting.

The first collections will kick off this week and ensure the Christmas cards of Harwich will be delivered with enthusiasm and young energy.
