Christmas Stamp Appeal 2019 - letter to editor

A letter from broadcaster and TV personality Vanessa Feltz in support of RNIB's Christmas stamp appeal.

Dear Editor,

Christmas and New Year is a time of giving and goodwill, but with a seemingly endless list of presents to buy and parties to attend, it isn’t always easy to find the spare cash to donate to a charitable cause.

This Christmas, you can help support sight loss charity the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) by collecting used stamps from the cards and parcels you’ll no doubt be receiving during the festive period and into the New Year.

Your stamps will be recycled and turned into vital funds that will help RNIB break down barriers that still exist in society for people living with sight loss. By donating your stamps, you will be supporting blind and partially sighted people and helping to tackle issues of isolation, inequality and unemployment head on.

To get involved and receive your pre-paid envelopes, visit or call 0303 123 9999. Then all you have to do is send your stamps using RNIB’s freepost envelopes, and they’ll take care of the rest. It really is that easy!

Show your support to RNIB this festive season, get collecting those stamps and help to create an equal society for people living with sight loss.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Vanessa Feltz

About RNIB

We are the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

Every six minutes, someone in the UK begins to lose their sight. RNIB is taking a stand against exclusion, inequality and isolation to create a world without barriers where people with sight loss can lead full lives. A different world where society values blind and partially sighted people not for the disabilities they’ve overcome, but for the people they are.

RNIB. See differently.
