Linda Vineall recently donated her late husband's collection of stamps, to the Rugby Advertiser stamp appeal.

Around 20 albums of postage stamps from one collector have been handed in for our charity stamp appeal.

Two boxes full of albums has been given to us by Linda Vineall. They contain many different stamps that have been accumulated and neatly displayed over many years.

Not a fond collector herself, the stamps had belonged to Linda’s late husband, David, who started collecting them from the early 1970s. He died ten years ago of leukaemia.

Mrs Vineall, of Nelson Way, said: “I had seen the appeal and decided to hand them in as part of it is going towards leukaemia, and therefore a good cause.

“I couldn’t just get rid of them. He collected more whilst he was ill as it was a hobby and an easy task for him to do. In previous years he didn’t have as much time to.”

With massive support from the public, we continue to have a large amount of British and foreign stamps being donated.

Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints volunteers will be collecting the stamps and passing them on to Oxfam and Leukaemia Care. This will help raise money and change the lives of people who are suffering with illness or poverty all around the world.

n Please drop off your stamps at the Advertiser offices or post them to 2 Albert Street, Rugby CV21 2RS.
