More than 100,000 stamps have been handed over to Oxfam with many being collected at the Daventry Express office.

It is part of a project run by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints which will see the stamps donated to Oxfam.

The stamps are likely to raise £1,250 and the money will go to Oxfam’s general fund and be used to help people in need around the world.

Daventry residents have collected 375,000 stamps in total. Des Waddington, from the church, said: “It’s hard to believe that in less than four years, so many stamps have been donated by the public.

“I also appreciate the hard work that church members and their friends put in to processing them before they are handed over to the charity.”
