Help Barnardo’s to stamp out poverty

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

The run up to Christ­mas usu­ally means an in­flux of lovely well- wish­ing cards from fam­ily and friends world­wide.

And Scot­land’s lead­ing chil­dren’s char­ity is ask­ing the peo­ple of Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang to make this good­will go a lit­tle fur­ther with a sim­ple stamp ap­peal.

Barnardo’s Scot­land has teamed up with Citadel Stamps to raise money for the vul­ner­a­ble chil­dren, young peo­ple and fam­i­lies the char­ity sup­ports.

It is ap­peal­ing for mem­bers of the pub­lic to hold on to their used stamps – clip­ping around the stamps leav­ing 10-20mm of en­ve­lope pa­per – and freep­ost­ing them to Barnardo’s Stamp Ap­peal, PO BOX 6107, Strom­ness, KW16 9AB.

Re­gional Fundrais­ing Man­ager for the chil­dren’s char­ity, Deb­o­rah Gross­man, said: “We of­ten get more post than ever dur­ing this fes­tive pe­riod and this is a pow­er­ful but sim­ple ini­tia­tive to al­low the magic of Christ­mas to spread that lit­tle bit fur­ther to help chil­dren through­out the coun­try.

“This im­pend­ing new year is of­ten a time where we set our­selves new goals, col­lect­ing and post­ing in used stamps for Barnardo’s Scot­land is an easy one to add to the list – that you can ac­tu­ally eas­ily stick to! Or what a bril­liant school project to take on af­ter the hol­i­days too.”

Barnardo’s Scot­land will re­ceive a fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion from part­ner Citadel Stamps for the load. All stamps are ac­cepted, in­clud­ing for­eign ones, lim­ited edi­tions and col­lec­tions.
