Can readers assist our very own Events and Membership Co-ordinator, Clair Ponting in collecting used stamps in aid of Clic Sargent?
Clair has set herself a challenge of collecting 8kgs of stamps by December 2019. 1kg of stamps will help a family stay in accommodation close to a hospital where their loved one is receiving treatment. There are 8 treatment centres around the UK, including Bristol and Cardiff, hence wanting to collect 8kgs to assist each centre.
Clair’s motivation for doing this comes from her 15 year old godson being diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia in October 2018, thankfully whilst rare it is highly treatable. She wanted to do something to help make the families lives easier and given her accident prone nature flinging herself off buildings or bungee jumping wasn’t an option!
If you have any used stamps, ideally with a 1cm border, please drop them off at Bristol Law Society’s office, 12 Colston Avenue or if you have a large amount, do let Clair know and she will come and collect them.
Many thanks in anticipation.
