Save stamps

Children's TV stampsThe CBM raises about 3,000 a year from the sale of used postage stamps. The total raised so far is over 90,000.

Although all postage stamps can be saved for the CBM, special issue stamps are worth about 90 times as much as 'ordinary' stamps. So using special issue stamps on your letters to brothers and sisters is an easy way to increase the amount raised for the CBM.

Used stamps should be cut from the envelopes with a quarter-inch (6 mm) border all the way round. Does your ecclesia have a collection point for stamps? If not, perhaps you could organise one. Stamps should be passed on to Jean Pearson. Packets may also be left at Olivet (Acocks Green) or the Christadelphian Office in Birmingham, clearly marked for her attention.
