Kin­tyre is help­ing to stamp out lep­rosy

Campbeltown Courier - - YOUR VIEWS -

Sir, I would like to thank the peo­ple of Camp­bel­town and sur­round­ing ar­eas who have sup­ported me in my work for the Lep­rosy Mis­sion by sav­ing their used stamps for me to col­lect.

Sev­eral busi­nesses have given me theirs for years but after an ar­ti­cle about my work in the Courier in Sep­tem­ber, more peo­ple are putting them aside for me. All you have to do is keep a hold of any let­ters with stamps on them and I will cut them out and send them to the Lep­rosy Mis­sion, which raises funds by sell­ing small items in­clud­ing stamps. I have sup­ported the Lep­rosy Mis­sion’s work for about 20 years and in that time I have seen hospi­tals built as a re­sult of these do­na­tions. If any­one would like to help, there are col­lec­tion boxes in Ge­orge McMil­lan’s and Boots. Joyce Draper, Camp­bel­town.
