The Royal Mail Group is in a three-year partnership with the charity which has already raised over £1.3 million.Each pack contains a mix of oats and sparkly crystals. The initiative is expected to raise tens of thousands of pounds. Nick Gittens, head of corporate social responsibility at Post Office Ltd, said: “The thinking behind the Reindeer Food is to build on the Christmas tradition of leaving treats outside for Santa’s Reindeer and to attract into the hospice movement some of the millions of pounds that people in the UK spend on novelty items at this time of year”.

Postal staff nationwide have linked up with their local hospices to organise fundraising activities and volunteer their free time and there has been “an exceptionally high level” of payroll giving, leading to Royal Mail Group’s payroll giving scheme winning awards at the Institute of Fundraising’s National Payroll Giving Awards and Pay Magazine’s Pay Awards.Last year retailer Argos raised £100,000 in three weeks for Help the Hospices through sales of packets of “reindeer food”.
