Used Stamp Appeal

As we have done in previous years, Cumbernauld Old is collecting used postage stamps for the annual Church of Scotland Used Stamps Appeal. This year the Stamp Project proceeds will benefit the Women’s Development Centre (WDC) in Kandy, Sri Lanka, which runs a project to support women and girls who have been victims of rape and sexual violence.

The WDC gives these women somewhere to stay, supports them in caring for their children, helps them return to education if they wish, and trains them in skills they can use to make a living when they leave.

Please pass your used stamps to Ivar Struthers before the end of January and he’ll make sure they’re passed on. Thank-you for your support!
