Stamp appeal

USED stamps could be put to good use to help a national charity.

The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) is asking people to pass on their old stamps to help raise much-needed funds.

All stamps are welcome and the charity can expect to receive £4.50 per kilogramme for British stamps and £12.50 for foreign ones.

Collectors are asked to leave at least half a centimetre of envelope around the stamp to prevent damage.

They should be sent to RNIB, PO Box 6198, Leighton Buzzard, LU7 9XT.
