Stamps & collectables

Stamps

It is hard to believe that a bunch of used stamps can help transform the life of someone affected by leprosy. But the fact is that it can! Over the past 30 years, TLM Stamps & Collectables has raised more than £1 million to benefit people affected by leprosy. It takes seconds to rescue a used stamp from an envelope destined for the recycling bin but, by doing so, healthcare and opportunities can be provided to people in desperate need.

We would be grateful if you could collect any of the following items on our behalf:

  • Stamps of all descriptions, GB and foreign (even the very common ones)
  • Postcards (GB and foreign, posted or unused)
  • Coins and bank notes
  • Cigarette cards
  • Old matchboxes
  • Medals

Please ensure when posting your gift to us that it is weighed and the correct postage paid. Royal Mail will otherwise make a surcharge for underpaid items.

  • Please send your gifts to:
    Phil and Eileen Jarman
    26 Drift Road
    Clanfield
    Waterlooville PO8 0JL
    Tel: 01733 51609401733 516094
    Email: philj@tlmew.org.uk

For more information on how you can help with your gift of stamps please download our Stamp Out Leprosy leaflet.

Please note all items we receive are sold to aid our work. To maximise your gift, it may be necessary to divide it up, or combine it with others to sell. It is therefore often sadly impossible for us to say what an individual gift realises, but together the proceeds from your gifts can achieve a great deal.

If you would like an acknowledgement of your gift, please include a stamped addressed envelope.
