Stamp appeal

Collect your used stamps for RNIB and make a real difference to the lives of blind and partially sighted people across the UK.

For people who still like to send and receive letters and parcels through the post, there’s a way of supporting RNIB that won’t cost you a penny!

Just collect used stamps from your cards and parcels and we will recycle them into much-needed funds. They will help even more people with sight loss access the information, support and advice they need.

This is an easy way to help support us and maybe you could ask your friends, family or work colleagues to get involved as well? We even have a poster you can download, to advertise a collection along with some Q and As:

How stamps make a difference

At RNIB we love and value all stamps - whether they’ve already been used, first or second class, foreign, first day covers, presentation packs or albums! We can use them all to raise funds for blind and partially sighted people across the UK. Stamps are sold by weight and we raise £20 per kilogram so it is one of the easiest ways to raise money!

Step by step guide

  • Step 1 – To get your pre-paid collection envelopes or boxes, complete the request form or call us on 0345 345 0054.
  • Step 2 – Start collecting all those stamps as they come through your postbox. Stamps do not need to be thoroughly sorted, but it helps if you can separate them into British and Overseas (Channel Islands and Isle of Man count as foreign). Just be sure to leave a one centimetre of envelope or packaging around each stamp!
  • Step 3 – Pack up your envelope or box and pop it in the post using our pre-paid address labels.

Why donate?

Every day 250 people will begin to lose their sight and many will face a future without any help or support. By supporting RNIB, you can help change this and give people with sight loss the gift of a brighter future.
