Bone cancer charity launches stamp appeal
Friends of UK charity, Bone Cancer Research Trust, have launched an appeal in a bid to raise funds.
The group, based in the UK, have appealed for Gibraltar’s support to raise funds by sending any stamps to them.
“We are a group of people throughout the UK who are raising funds independently for this wonderful charity and we need help worldwide,” the group said.
“We would also like to thank everyone who has helped us over the last year.”
“With Christmas around the corner we are appealing for your support by asking everyone to save their used and new postage stamps from the UK and overseas, horizon labels (the gold or white labels that the UK post office stick on everything instead of stamps) first day covers and collections and now used and new postcards of any age from anywhere around the world.”
“Every stamp sent to us will help to fund life-saving research into primary bone cancer.”
“It’s really easy for your friends and family to get involved.”
The group said that any stamp given will be sold appropriately to raise the most they can, especially with stamp collections.
They are also collecting any obsolete UK and foreign money now as well.
Primary bone cancer can occur at any age, but affects mostly children, teenagers, young adults and the elderly.
Every 10 minutes somewhere in the world someone is diagnosed with primary bone cancer.
The group said collecting used stamps is a simple way to make a huge difference.
