Collecting Used Stamps – Helping The Leprosy Mission
Over the years Brown Clee Group have collected considerable numbers of used postage stamps. These have been checked and forwarded to The Leprosy Mission for England and Wales for onward collation and eventual sale. The proceeds of their sale being used in the main to change lives of people affected by Leprosy.
During 2015 a total of £136,153.34 was raised from the sale of used stamps and collectables. In fact since 1983 £1.4 million has been raised and used by this Registered Charity.
I would like to thank everyone who has donated used stamps to this very worthwhile charity and ask that you continue to leave your stamps in Ditton Priors Church for my collection.
The Leprosy Mission request that all donated stamps are left on their backing and not soaked off. It is also requested that the backing of used stamps is trimmed with a maximum of 5mm of single thickness paper border around each edge.
Thank you again for your donations to date. I look forward to this good work continuing.
