A sad announcement from the Christmas Charity Post Chairman:
After careful consideration, it is with great regret that the Christmas Charity Post [CCP] Committee have decided it is not in a position to restart its service of delivering Christmas cards to the three villages of Fetcham, Bookham and Effingham after last year’s enforced break because of the Coronavirus. Unfortunately the age and health of those who managed and volunteered to run CCP is such that it is just not practicable to continue.
After 35 years of continuous service, starting in 1984, nearly 500,000 cards have been delivered and over £100,000 raised for Third World charities. I am sure many who used this valuable service will sorely miss it as well as the charities that we have supported over the years.
We thank all those who have helped us in the past, the Area Managers and their teams of devoted volunteers who sold stamps and delivered cards and the shops who sold stamps and acted as collection points.
