CWI have teamed up with Stamps n All in Plymouth who can recycle goods to help the environment and raise money towards our work!
Here's what they can recycle:
Any stamps including collections used or unused. If they are on envelopes or cards, please leave about half a centimeter round the edges. Please dont peel off stamps - it reduces their value. If the stamps are on envelopes or cards postmarked before 1970, do not remove them. This is because they can be worth more as a collectible item still complete on the envelope. Also now wanted any of the large white or Gold Labels now used by Post Office.
Any Postcards. Pre-1940s birthday cards. World War 1 silk cards with or without stamps on, but dont remove stamps from postcards if they are on them.
Envelopes and first-day covers old, interesting looking, even containing their letters in.
Coins and bank notes old or new, from anywhere in the world, obsolete or otherwise.
Precious metal including broken jewelry, old trophies, gold, silver etc.
Medals and badges and that is not limited to military items either.
Costume jewellery is accepted.
Keys any age or type including locks.
Watches analogue, digital, working or not.
Mobile phones any age or type providing they are not physically damaged.
Small antiques generally the small table trinkets, old stoneware bottles and pot lids, dolls heads etc (pre 1930 only please).
Take a look in the loft. You would be amazed how much that old junk could raise for CWI!
Large collections by special arrangement. Telephone 01752-296-369 Mon Wed & Fri 9am to 5pm.
Small lots can be mailed direct to Stamps n All at address below:
STAMPS N ALL
PO Box 83
Remember, always ask for real stamps when posting anything, instead of the computer generated label. If you ask nicely you'll be able to get good commemoratives and possibly even a circular date stamp depending on service used.
Stamps n All (Sole Trader), which means that all goods donated for Charities are paid, but the sole trader profits from goods donated.
