Cubs from the Market Rasen pack will be getting out and about this month delivering Christmas cards for local residents.

They are among hundreds of scouting members across the country who have turned to Scout Post to help raise funds for their individual groups.

But for the Second Market Rasen Scout Group, the need to raise money is vital to repair their hut.

As reported previously, a large hole developed in the floor of the main storage area and subsequent testing showed the whole was affected and needed securing.”

The estimated cost of repair is in the region of £20,000.

“The money we will raise with the post is just a drop in the ocean,” said Akela Maggie Collinson.

“But it is the cubs themselves raising the money and every bit helps.”

The scout post will run until December 23 and will deliver to Middle Rasen and Market, together with Holton le Moor, Moortown and South Kelsey with the help of Tesco Community Champion Jenny Stimson.

Stamps and the special post boxes, which is for Christmas cards only, can be found at Tesco, Market Rasen Library and Rasen Hub.
