Letter to Editor:- "Stamp
appeal for Bone Cancer Research Trust"
"I'M looking for support for my stamp
appeal to raise money for the Bone Cancer Research Trust (Charity Number
1159590), the leading charity dedicated to fighting primary bone cancer, and
would love the support of your readers. We are looking for used and new postage
stamps from the UK and overseas, and any amount at any time of the year is very
much appreciated. More stamps are used in December than the rest of the months
put together! Please save your new and used stamps; whether you get a few stamps
a year for your birthday or you get lots from your friends from all over the
world, or you can even save them from the bin at work! Instead of throwing away
your stamped envelopes, we can raise vital funds to help us continue with our
research, providing information, raising awareness as well as offer support to
those who need it. Primary bone cancer can occur at any age, but affects mostly
children, teenagers, young adults and the elderly. On average 12 people every
week are diagnosed across the UK and Ireland. The survival rate for this disease
is just over 50% and this has not changed in the last 25 years. With your help
we can work towards changing this, so more people have a chance to live! Please
help us to raise awareness as well as funds just by sending in something that
you would normally out into the rubbish bin!
Please send your stamps to:-
BCRT Stamp Appeal
20 Bowers Road
Terri.Volunteer@BCRT.Org.UK for more information."
Yours sincerely, Mrs Terri Bush,
BCRT Stamp Appeal Volunteer.
