Kintyre’s red nosed Rotary Club of Campbeltown posties will pound the pavements for the same price as last year.
The club’s Christmas postal service gives real value for money at 25p per card, four cards for £1, and £2 per parcel.
A Rotary spokesperson said: ‘Cards can be delivered throughout Kintyre as far north as Tayinloan and Carradale.
‘Please remember that Clachan is several miles beyond Tayinloan and that Grogport is well beyond Carradale. Members of the public are asked if they will be careful not to hand in cards addressed to places outwith the delivery area. In spite of previous requests, we still get cards addressed to places well away from South Kintyre.
‘This year collecting boxes will be at: Wallpaper Shop, McGeachy Butchers, Keiths Newsagents, Glenbarr Stores and Muneroy Stores Southend. Boxes will be in place from December 1.
‘The Rotary caravan will be on Main Street, Campbeltown, on Wednesday December 12, Saturday December 15 and Wednesday December 19.
‘The last collection day from the shops will be Wednesday December 19, with cards being delivered from the next day onwards and all cards will be delivered before Christmas.
‘Please try to make sure that your cards are properly addressed as cards marked Granny, Carradale, or Auntie Jean, Southend are difficult to deliver.
‘The Rotary Club would like to thank all the shopkeepers for their help and all those non-Rotarians who help in any way.
‘After Christmas and New Year, it is hoped that Rotarian Ann Gallacher will collect old Christmas cards.
‘Funds raised in this way will be used to help Rotary’s support of charities and other good causes in Kintyre and elsewhere.’
