RSPB Highland Local Group - collection of used postage stamps

Following a press release on 30th November from The Charity Commission, and subsequent stories in the national press regarding the fraudulent use of used postage stamps, we have been reviewing our current Albatross Stamp Appeal scheme.

We have decided to cease collection of used bulk postage stamps immediately but, continue with requests for the donation of stamp collections, first day covers and albums.

We are determined to avoid any risk to our fundraising activity and to continue to raise thousands of pounds every year to save albatrosses from extinction both at sea and on land - with your support.
