Did you know that you can help us to raise money by collecting your used stamps?
Collecting stamps is an easy way to help us raise money and it doesn’t cost you a penny. All you have to do is tear the stamp from the envelope, set it to one side until you have a small collection, and then simply pop them into one of our pre-paid envelopes or drop them into the Sight Centre. We are given money for every kilogram of stamps collected. This money is put towards our services, helping us to support people living with sight loss in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
In December 2016 alone, Royal Mail delivered more than 130 million parcels and letters to UK households. That’s 130 million used stamps that could have been converted into much-needed funds for charity.
How do I get involved?
- Complete the form below, contact us on 01872 261110 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us to send you a pre-paid envelope.
- Start collecting your used stamps – they can be first class, second class or even overseas stamps. They don’t need to be sorted but it does help if you can separate them into British and Overseas stamps. You need to leave a one-centimetre border of envelope or packaging around each stamp.
- Pack your used stamps into your pre-paid envelope and pop them in the post. Alternatively, you can drop them into the Sight Centre in Truro.
