PEOPLE in Sedgemoor are being asked to collect used stamps this Christmas in aid of the Royal National Institute of Blind People.

To donate, simply cut the stamp from the envelope leaving at least half an inch around the stamp to prevent damage.

The RNIB receives £4.50 per kilogram for British stamps and £12.50 for foreign ones, which all goes towards supporting blind and partially sighted people.

Stamps can be sent to RNIB, PO Box 6198, Leighton Buzzard, LU7 9XT or for more information call 0845-345-0054.
