Alton Webteam: December 2020
A huge "Thank You" to our intrepid BB delivery team for helping to make this year's Christmas Post such a success! Without a lot of hard work it wouldn't have happened.
We had feared that the Christmas Post might not be able to operate this year due to the Covid-19 restrictions, but some quick rethinking enabled this much-valued service to be offered once again. And our older BB Boys (and leaders!), agreed once again to help to deliver the cards entrusted to us to the various addresses throughout the town.
But how do we know that the service is "much valued"? Well, thanks to you all, we have delivered nearly 1100 cards in Alton and Holybourne, bringing in over £300 for Company funds. But many of those who used our postal service also made donations, some small and some extremely generous, amounting to over £250.
What this tells us is that, not only is the Post valued, but so too is the week-by-week work of our BB Company.
And that really is reassuring.
