We collect stamps for the Leprosy Mission. It is hard to believe that a bunch of used stamps can help transform the life of someone affected by leprosy. But the fact is that it can! Over the past 30 years the Leprosy Mission has raised more than £1 million to benefit people affected by leprosy. Find out more here

April sees us meet to support Street Child which supports the education of children. This charity helps a range of children from those who live in rural areas and have no access to schools, to those whose schools have been destroyed by conflict. As Easter holidays approach with our children starting there time off school come and help raise money for those less fortunate.
March saw us meet to raise £76.50 for Edwards Trust. This charity provides support for children and families facing loss and surviving bereavement in the West Midlands area.
