We have started to collect and sell used postage stamps to raise funds. Please would you save all your old stamps for us (plus get all your friends to as well) and send them direct to:
ARC 1370083
c/o Charity Stamps Support
46 Church Hill
Chorley
PR6 7LQ
You need to leave a small border of envelope around each one so that they don't get torn.
Thanks all! I will let you know what sort of income this generates

When you receive a letter cut the stamp off (leaving a border of envelope so the stamp doesn't get damaged). These are then sorted and sold to stamp collectors in other countries x

I usually collect stamps, but I could save and send the boring ones with just the Queen's head on them. :)

Im saving mine but it will take a while to collect a decent amount as most of the post that comes through the door is in pre paid envelopes
