From the 1st Llanishen Scout Group's website
The Cardiff Scout Christmas Post started in November 1984, as a joint venture between 1st Llanishen and 5th Cardiff (St. Martins). Cardiff was split into two sections, with 1st Llanishen delivering cards for the North and 5th Cardiff delivering cards for the South of Cardiff. Both groups realised that this was going to become too large a operation for just two groups to manage, and the following year, Geller Mallet, GSL of 5th Cardiff, got about 20 more groups from all over Cardiff involved and the Scout Post has expanded ever since. In the first year, between the two groups, approximately 14,000 cards were sorted and delivered across Cardiff. This figure is now almost a million cards delivered across Cardiff, Penarth, Barry and the Vale. This annual event has become the most valuable and successful fund raising event in the Groupís history.
