The run up to Christmas usually means an influx of lovely well-wishing cards from family and friends worldwide. And Scotland’s leading children’s charity are asking the people of Angus and Dundee to make this goodwill go a little further with a simple stamp appeal.
Barnardo’s Scotland has teamed up with Citadel Stamps to raise money for the vulnerable children, young people and families the charity supports. They are appealing for members of the public to hold on to their used stamps – clipping around the stamps leaving 10-20mm of envelope paper – and freeposting them to Barnardo’s Stamp Appeal, PO BOX 6107, Stromness, KW16 9AB.
Regional Fundraising Manager for the children’s charity, Deborah Grossman, said: “We often get more post than ever during this festive period and this is a powerful but simple initiative to allow the magic of Christmas to spread that little bit further to help children throughout the country. This impending new year is often a time where we set ourselves new goals, collecting and posting in used stamps for Barnardo’s Scotland is an easy one to add to the list – that you can actually easily stick to! Or what a brilliant school project to take on after the holidays too.”
Barnardo’s Scotland will receive a financial contribution from partner Citadel Stamps for the load. All stamps are accepted, including foreign ones, limited editions and collections.
