Card drop off - Monday 4 to Thursday 14 January 2021
(PLEASE ONLY DROP YOUR CARDS OFF IF YOU ARE PASSING BY AS PART OF AN ESSENTIAL JOURNEY - DO NOT MAKE A SPECIAL TRIP)
How to get involved
Card drop off: We have a slightly different arrangement this year, and due to the current Covid regulations we have to advise people not to make a special journey with the cards. Please only drop off cards if you are passing by as part of an essential journey; Government guidelines are clear that we should only be making essential journeys.
The drop off point this year is over the road from Linton House at Thirlestaine Breast Screening Centre where they have an in/out drive. There are large signs saying Christmas Cards and two large bins with a sanitiser station.
PLEASE DO NOT DROP CARDS OFF IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY PASSING BY AS PART OF AN ESSENTIAL JOURNEY.
Please leave cards in carrier bags or boxed to minimise contact.
Donated cards will be sorted and upcycled by our volunteers into new greetings cards to raise vital funds for our charity.
We are proud to work with local company Printwaste who specialise in recycling and confidential shredding.
Printwaste ensure any waste left over from the collection gets transformed into other paper based products.
We do accept greeting cards all year round as well as stamps.
