Stamps Appeal

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 usually sold by weight, but if we can identify any valuable stamps they can be sold for a higher price. We expect to receive around £10 for one kilogram of British stamps, and up to £15 for a kilogram of overseas stamps.

How to sort out your stamps

Please cut the stamp off the envelope, leaving around one centimeter of envelope or packaging around each stamp. Please then separate your stamps into:

  • British
    Overseas including Jersey, Guernsey, Eire and Isle of Man
  • The value of a stamp doesn’t matter, so one pence stamps can be grouped together with one pound stamps.

Collected stamps should be sent to:
105 Judd Street
Kings Cross

If you have any questions, please email or call on 0345 345 0054 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).

Inter Care I+ Medical Aid for Africa

Inter Care I+ Medical Aid for Africa is a UK registered charity which collects selected returned patient medicines from GP practices and, after appropriate quality controls, recycles them free of charge to a network of over one hundred health centres in seven desperately poor countries of sub-Saharan Africa.

How to Donate Medicines
Members of the public can return their unwanted medicines to their GP. Inter Care then collects the medicines from the GP, and their trusty volunteer team of healthcare professionals check and sort the medicines before they are shipped to the clinics in Africa.

GPs and other health professionals can register to collect returned medicines and other surgical items by downloading our Healthcare Professionals Information Pack which includes registration forms, details of our collection service, a list of the medical and surgical items we can accept, and posters asking patients to bring in their unused medicines.

If your GP or pharmacist is not registered please tell them about InterCare.

You can also donate stamps and a number of other goods to InterCare who will either recycle or sell them to raise money.  You can find a full list of items they will accept here:
