Generous Daventry residents have made yet another bumper donation of 30,000 used stamps to charity via Orchard Print Services on High Street, bringing the total up to 530,000.

The campaign, which is being run by the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, sees the stamps handed on to Oxfam and Leukaemia Care, helping to raise vital funds. Some stamps are resold while others are recycled for their silk content.

Volunteers like Jakki Bardsley and her two daughters (pictured) help with sorting the stamps. Jakki said, “We have fun in each other’s company, chat about all kinds of things and love the fact that we are doing this for such a worthwhile cause.”

Stamps can also be donated via the post office on Sheaf Street.
