Get Involved

Recycling your used stamps is one of the easiest ways to support the MPS Society.

It only takes a few minutes to tear your stamps off the envelope, pop them in an envelope or jiffy bag (or if you’re a super collector, a cardboard box!) and send them to us at: MPS House, Repton Place, White Lion Road, Amersham, Bucks, HP7 9LP

Every kilogram of stamps that we collect can then be sold and the funds raised will go towards supporting children and young people affected by MPS and related diseases. We collect all stamps (providing they are undamaged) from normal 1st and 2nd class UK stamps to foreign, special edition and first day covers, so please don’t bin them – send them our way instead and help make a difference.

Looking for a quick and easy way to fundraise?

Why not get in contact and request a MPS Society collection box – you can pick up the pennies from your workplace, at your kitchen table or even ask your local shop to put it on their counter.

The MPS Society does not receive any government funding, every penny really does help us to continue our work.

If you would like to fall and fundraise for us, get in touch by emailing fundraising@mpssociety.org.uk for more information!
