Save stamps for char­ity

Sunderland Echo - - Opinion -

I am ap­peal­ing to read­ers to do­nate their used stamps this Christ­mas and do­nate them to Kid­ney Care UK to help us raise much-needed funds for kid­ney pa­tients.

Ev­ery Christ­mas more than one bil­lion cards are sent in the UK and for ev­ery 1kg of used stamps do­nated we can raise as much as £20 to help peo­ple with chronic kid­ney dis­ease.

There are 64,000 peo­ple be­ing treated for kid­ney fail­ure in the UK right now and 104 peo­ple are cur­rently wait­ing for a trans­plant our re­gioin.

Your sup­port will help us to pro­vide prac­ti­cal, fi­nan­cial and emo­tional sup­port for kid­ney pa­tients and their fam­i­lies when they need it most.

We be­lieve no one should face kid­ney dis­ease alone, and es­pe­cially not at Christ­mas.

You can read and download our step by step guide to col­lect­ing and do­nat­ing used stamps at www.kid­n­ey­careuk.org

Fi­nally, we hope all read­ers have a won­der­ful Christ­mas and a fan­tas­tic new year, Paddy Ta­bor MVO, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, Kid­ney Care UK
