TOTS at a Rugby nursery have been busy collecting stamps for our charity appeal.

Daisykins Day Nursery in Whitehall Road is the latest to get on board and help collect stamps for the Advertiser Stamp Appeal.

So far the toddlers, staff and parents have collected scores of stamps to boost our appeal.

Nursery manager Pam Simpkins said: “We started collecting stamps about three weeks ago. We’ve got lots from all different countries because we have parents from different backgrounds. We set up a collection box for everyone to see and they can cut out their stamps and put them in.

“I’m not sure how many we’ve got so far but there’s a lot.”

So far our generous readers have helped us collect more than 70,000 stamps.

After they leave the Advertiser office, the stamps are sorted and then split between Oxfam and Leukaemia Care.

We have now collected enough stamps to enable Oxfam to pay for a solar powered greenhouse for growing fruit and vegetables all year round.

Once the stamps have been sold or auctioned, Oxfam could fund a CARE line team member for a week with £300.

But we still want more please. Drop your stamps into the Advertiser office in Albert Street or call Alice Dyer on (01788) 539969.
