Run the Xmas Post


The changing rules from Scouting and the Charities Commission along wth changing expectations are all making administration of our events more demanding. Over the years we have also realised just how many tasks are associated with our Xmas Post service.

Our Online Event can help with all of this with:-

  • Automatic reservation of the HQ (for sorting and delivery)
  • Build the web page including the booking process and forms for offers of help.
  • Simple approach to registering income & Expense and tracking of refunded expenses
  • Create your final accounts and send these to the treasurer with a single button
  • A detailed checklist that covers all activities leading up to and including sort and delivery.

Key Stages in preparing for our Xmas Post

  1. Activities up to and including creating the Event Web Page (This page - see below)
  2. Activities to be completed up to and including delivery - Available in Event Record after create event
