We at HomeStore have been collecting postage stamps for the charity “Hearing Dogs for Deaf People” for quite a while now (!) and every time we have a letter at work or I have a letter or card at home I cut the stamp off and add it to an envelope I have sitting on my desk. Now given that so many businesses frank their mail it has taken about two years for us to collect almost an A4 envelope full and so, now on behalf of HomeStore, I am putting out the appeal to anyone who’d like to help, by saving stamps from letters and cards and parcels, over the Christmas period and then let me know so that I can send you a pre-paid and addressed envelope to get your contributions back to us.
Please help us really “stuff that envelope” – Thank you.
Helpful Tips for Taking Part
- Trim stamps with approximately 1 cm of paper round the edge
- No large gold Post Office printed labels or pre-printed postage marks can be accepted
- If possible, stamps need to be seperated into two categories – British and Overseas.
- Call Sarah on 01473 721041 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an envelope so that you can send the stamps back to us to help “stuff our envelope”
