This Christmas, collect stamps for RNIB and make a difference to blind and partially sighted people.

If you receive cards and letters through the post, could you save the stamps to send to us? We will recycle them into much-needed funds for our services, such as our Letter from Santa in accessible formats for children with vision impairment to help them feel included at Christmas.

Be a stamp collector for a good cause

  • Step 1: Get pre-paid collection envelopes or boxes for your stamps by completing the request form, (click here for the request form); or by calling our Helpline on 0303 123 9999.
  • 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.
  • Step 3: Pack up your envelope or box, and pop it in the post using our pre-paid address labels.

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. We accept all stamps: new or used, first or second class, foreign, first day covers, presentation packs or albums. Stamps are sold by weight and we raise £20 per kilogramme of stamps, so it’s a brilliant way to raise money.
