Collect stamps for RNIB and make a difference to blind and partially sighted people.

If you receive cards and letters through the post, could you save the stamps to send to us? We will recycle them into much-needed funds for our services.

Be a stamp collector for a good cause

  • Step 1: Get pre-paid collection envelopes or boxes for your stamps by completing the request form, or by calling our Helpline on 0303 123 9999 option 4.

  • Step 2: Start collecting stamps as they come through your post box or at your work. Stamps don't need to be thoroughly sorted, but it helps if you can separate them into British and foreign stamps (Channel Islands and Isle of Man count as foreign). Make sure you leave a centimetre of envelope or packaging around each stamp. This is just a recommendation and stamps that have been trimmed less or more will still be accepted.

  • Step 3: Pack up your envelope or box, and pop it in the post using our pre-paid address labels. 

We are experiencing delays at the moment so it might take longer than usual for you to receive your envelopes and boxes, once you have registered.

If you have your stamps ready to send now,  just contact us on 0303 123 9999 (option 4) or email [email protected]

How stamps make a difference

By collecting stamps you're helping to break down the barriers that stop people with sight loss living life to the full. We accept all stamps: new or used, first or second class, foreign, first day covers, presentation packs or albums. Stamps are sold by weight and we raise £20 per kilogramme of stamps, so it's a brilliant way to raise money.

Get everyone involved

Saving stamps is an easy way to support us at home, work, or in your local community. You can request a handy little collection box for your office reception, school or local community centre. We've put together a Q and A and some posters so you can get your friends, family and work colleagues involved too:

Old and foreign currency

You can also support RNIB by donating disused or foreign money.

If you have any surplus foreign currency from overseas trips, or any unusable old British currency hiding at the back of the drawer, we’d love to receive it!
