It doesn’t matter if they have already been used, or if they are everyday first or second class stamps – they can collect enough of them to raise money for RNIB. They can raise more money from overseas stamps and they also collect first day covers, presentation packs and albums.
Stamps are sorted by volunteers. They are mostly sold by weight. If any valuable stamps are identified, they can be sold for a higher price. As a general guideline RNIB can expect to receive around £10 for one kilogram of British stamps and up to £15 for a kilogram of overseas stamps. Do encourage your friends and family, at home and abroad, to save their stamps for RNIB.
Dame Judi Dench is supporting their stamp appeal and urging everyone to send their used stamps to RNIB! She says “I have age related macular degeneration but, whilst my sight has been affected, I count myself as one of the lucky ones. By supporting this all-year-round campaign… [RNIB] can help more people.”
Collected stamps should be sent to:
RNIB Stamp Recycling
PO Box 185
