This is a webpage listing charities in the UK which collect used postage stamps to raise money for charity. Charities find used stamps an excellent source of extra income, and you are helping save the environment by not binning them! What could be better?
If you collect stamps for a charity, add yourself to the list
Just send an email with what charity its for, a few words about the charity so that people know what cause they are supporting, if its not clear from the name, and an email/website where people can ask for the postal address of where to send the stamps. This listing is free, and kept up to date, so if things change, just contact me to have the listing edited or removed.
