Donate your stamps to CLAN

Individuals are being asked to think of a leading north-east cancer support charity by donating leftover stamps from Christmas.

CLAN Cancer Support has issued an appeal for any second-hand stamps from Christmas presents and card packaging that it can recycle to raise funds. The charity is also on the hunt for all foreign coins and any unwanted mobile phone handsets, of any condition, which again can be recycled to raise funds for the charity. CLAN launched a similar appeal this time last year and saw hundreds of handsets donated, along with a range of coins and stamps with all funds raised going towards its provision of free support services to anyone affected by cancer.

Susan Crighton, CLAN’s fundraising manager, said: “We’ve had great success in the past with this appeal and I’d like to thank all those who have donated any of these to the charity. Your donation really can make a big difference.”

Donations of foreign coins, stamps and mobile phones can be made in person at any of the CLAN sessions at 8 Robert Street, Stonehaven on a Monday, 6pm to 8.30pm, Wednesday, 10am to 1.30pm and a Tuesday and Thursday from 10am to 4pm.
