Become a #TeamBones Stamp Champ, save your everyday stamps and help save lives!

By saving just 1kg of stamps you can help pay towards an hour of our vital life-saving research across the UK.

Step by step guide:

  • Sign up below to become a BCRT Stamp Champ or get started by downloading our handy Stamp Appeal Poster.
  • Start collecting! Invite friends, family, local schools, businesses or groups to join in. The more stamps saved means the more money raised!
  • Carefully cut the stamp from the envelope or package, leaving a 1cm border around the edge.
  • Save them up and once you have a bundle, send them to - BCRT Stamp Appeal, Bone Cancer Research Trust, 10 Feast Field, Horsforth, Leeds, LS18 4TJ

What types of stamps do we need?

There are so many different types of stamps and BCRT love them all! Whether they are new or used, first or second class, foreign, first days covers, horizon labels or part of a larger collection or album. We can use them all to help fund our life-saving work into primary bone cancer.

How does it work?

The stamps that we receive are sorted into categories and then sold in bulk by weight. We receive £10 per kilogram, so it really is an easy way to raise funds! We work with an auction company that sells stamps onto collectors and dealers throughout the UK and overseas. However, the special collections, albums or rare stamps that we receive are sold separately at auction (usually with a reserve on the items).

The majority of our stamps are sold onto private individuals to fill gaps in their collections, but some are also sold onto artists who use them to create pop art collage canvases.

Do you have a large collection or need help sending your stamps to us?

We're more than happy to look into the possibility of arranging a collection or pickup for a large collection of stamps. If you need assistance in sending your stamps to us, please do get in touch.
