Stamps for Charity

If you have many envelopes with stamps, consider giving them to the RSPB.

The RSPB raises between £10,000 and £15,000 per year from the sale of stamps – all thanks to the generous donations from supporters.

And it is quite a challenge - each year up to 100,000 albatrosses drown because of being caught on the billion baited hooks used by longline fishing boats in the southern oceans. 21 out of the 23 species of albatross are threatened with extinction. The RSPB and Birdlife International have set up Operation Ocean Task Force to train people to work with fishermen at sea. They show crews simple ways to avoid catching albatrosses on their fishing lines. This work can make a huge difference, but it is expensive.

If you are willing to donate stamps (ideally cut down with a good border of about  1/2 cm but with envelopes is fine!), please give them to Jill Hewitt or 8A Glendale.
