Weston Hospicecare is urging people to think twice before throwing away their used stamps - as they could be used to help terminally-ill people.

The hospice says it can sell on the stamps and then put the funds back into patient care.

Hospicecare volunteers sort and trim the stamps after donation and the donation of stamps has already raised more than £100 in a few months.

The charity’s community and events manager Sally Davis said: “Whether they’re first or second-class, British or overseas, used stamps can help us provide support to people going through a very difficult time in their lives.

“Please consider just tearing the stamp off the envelope as you sort through your post, leaving about a centimetre around each stamp, and dropping the stamps off at the hospice or in the hospice shops.”

Stamps can be donated at any of the hospice’s 16 shops across the region, or at its headquarters in Thornbury Road, Uphill. Contact 01934 423900 for more information.
