A NEWS Telegraph appeal for used stamps to raise money for Leukeamia charities has resulted in a huge response.
As part of our ‘Take Five Minutes’ appeal, prompted by our editor’s wife, Katherine Sinfield, being diagnosed with Leukaemia, we asked readers to send in used stamps and hundreds have arrived at our Market Place office.
Editor Stephen Sinfield said: “We are thrilled with the response to our stamp appeal. We wanted a way in which we could raise money for leukaemia charities without it costing anybody anything and used stamps was the obvious answer. This appeal has exceeded our expectations.
“Both Leukaemia Care and Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research will benefit from these stamp donations.
“Please keep them coming, the charities need your help everyday while people just the same as my wife Katherine, are diagnosed with this truly destructive blood cancer every day of every week.”
