Recycling used postage stamps is a great way to raise funds for St Peter’s Church. The price for stamps collected has increased recently to almost quadruple the value of ten years ago. Charities across Britain are benefiting from this, and you can help us at St Peters. Stamp recycling is a very easy way to help charities. Simply collect the
postage stamps from any mail you receive, and once you have collected an envelope full they can be left in the Church, Church Hall or Parish Office.
Recycling companies pay charities £7.50 for every kilo of donated stamps collected and sent. All postage stamps are accepted including Collections which are treated with great respect. If valuable, the collection of stamps is sold on Ebay and 90% of proceeds will go to
St Peter’s Church.
The stamps should be carefully clipped, leaving plenty of room [5 – 10mm]
around the stamp. This will increase the value of the stamps, making more money!

Dear friends at St. Peter’s Church,
My name is Katherine Bruning and I was recently appointed as a teacher at St Peter’s School. One of my roles is that of subject leader for Religious Education. I’m a real advocate of quality RE; and there is some really good work going on within the academy. Rev Hunter is a regular visitor into school and also the link governor for RE; it was great to meet with him last month and share our exciting plans for RE over the coming year.
We are starting a new curriculum and I am planning some RE days for the children which we really hope we can link with church in some way.
However, we are really short of resources. For outstanding learning to take place, I believe that children need access to child- friendly Bibles and real artefacts. So I’m asking if you would be able to help us. The first items on my shopping list are three sets of Bibles; however, as I’m sure you’re aware books are not cheap- and schools are on a tight budget! So would you be able to sponsor a Bible?
I’m asking if you would be able to make a donation towards the cost of some children’s Bibles which we would purchase in school through our supplies company. We thought it would be lovely to acknowledge the donation with a book plate inside the Bibles.
Donations however big or small would be gratefully received. We thought it best if Rev Hunter acted as the intermediary and he would pass on the money to me via school.
The children – and the teachers- would really appreciate anything you can give! We would look forward to sharing with you what a difference it makes to our teaching and learning!
Many thanks in anticipation, Katherine.
