World Mission Stamp Appeal
World Mission Stamp Appeal

The Church of Scotland World Mission Stamp Appeal celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. That's 50 years of making a real difference to communities and projects around the world, just by collecting used stamps. 

Funds from the 2019/20 anniversary appeal will support the Chigodi Women Centre in Blantyre, Malawi, which is also celebrating its 50th anniversary.

Why not save your used postage stamps to help make a real difference to World Mission partner projects, and help the environment too? You could encourage your congregation, friends, family, colleagues, neighbours and anyone else you know to collect too! If each person saves just a few stamps we could help to make this a record-breaking year for the appeal. To find out more, including this year's appeal poster and another special 50th anniversary download, click here.

Please save your stamps for this fantastic cause. You can drop them off at the Presbytery Office - we're happy to take any donation, no matter how large or small.
