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 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

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.
