Save your stamps and old money for RNIB
Collect stamps, as well as old and foreign currency, for RNIB and make a difference to blind and partially sighted people.
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 will recycle them, we get a small amount refunded to us for each stamp we recycle and this adds up into much-needed funds for our services.
We raise £20 per kilogramme of stamps
Stamps are sold by weight, so it's a brilliant way to raise money. 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 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 a high demand for envelopes and boxes at the moment and it might take a bit longer than usual for these to reach you.
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:
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.
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!
