    Carmarthenshire couple hits half a million for Stamp Appeal


    A Carmarthenshire couple has collected over half a million stamps in support of RNIB’s Stamp Appeal.

    Rhian Rowcliffe, 58, and Kevin Rowcliffe, 62, both from Pencader, started collecting stamps for the charity in 2016 following the Christmas period. 

    The RNIB stamp appeal helps us to make a real difference to the lives of partially sighted people across the UK. Stamps are sold by weight and £20 is raised per kilogram.

    The couple initially aimed to collect 10,000 stamps but lost count after reaching the half a million mark.
