Everyone loves receiving mail – the hard solid kind (as long as it isn’t a bill), and as more and more of us buy online, although the letter writing industry has been hugely reduced in recent years, the Post Office is still going strong delivering all those lovely parcels. So, now, rather than throwing the wrapping away, help us (or help the charity directly) and save those stamps.
Against Breast Cancer is collecting all donated stamps, and as they explain on their site, they can receive money which can then go towards the fight against breast cancer.
So you now know what to do – go shopping online (guilt free) and save the stamps! If you are in LSI give them over to (Elly or Anna) reception, if you are not, then read below and maybe send them to Against Breast Cancer.
“We’re raising money by recycling postage stamps. Whether they’re British or overseas, new or used, send them to us and we’ll turn your old postage stamps into funds to support breast cancer research.
Stamps are sold by weight. As a general guideline we can expect to receive around £20 for one kilogram of stamps, so do encourage your friends and family, at home and abroad, to save their stamps for us.
How to donate used stamps:
Please cut the stamp off the envelope. When cutting, leave approximately 1cm of envelope bordering each stamp. The rest of the envelope can be discarded (which will make it cheaper to send).”
