Be a stamp collector for a good cause

If you receive cards and letters through the post, could you save the stamps to send to us? We'll turn them into funds to help people living with sight loss.

Did you know? We raise £20 for every kilogramme of stamps we receive

Stamps are sold by weight, so whatever you can send will add up to much-needed funds for our services. We accept all stamps: new or used, first or second class, foreign, first day covers, presentation packs or albums.

How to send us your stamps

Step 1: Get pre-paid collection envelopes or boxes for your stamps by completing the request form, or by calling our team on 0330 002 0051 (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm) or email [email protected].

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.

Please note, demand for envelopes and boxes is typically higher during the Christmas period. Because of this, it might take a little longer than usual for these to reach you.

If you have any questions, you can contact our fundraising team by emailing [email protected] or calling 0330 002 0051 (Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm).

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 question and answer document 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!
