Collecting stamps for The David Ashwell Foundation (Charity number 1121783)

The David Ashwell Foundation can raise money for ACD Research through your generous stamp donations.  All types of stamps are welcome. However, a mix which is almost entirely the standard 1st and 2nd class stamps will get less per kilo than a mix that's brimming with colourful special issue stamps, and stamps of non-letter rate denominations.  For more details see


  • Stamps should be on single thickness backing paper (i.e. not front and back of the envelope) and the backing paper should be trimmed to about 4mm to 8mm.
  • Nothing else should be mixed with the stamps (e.g. coins, postcards).
  • You do not need to sort stamps into different catagories.


  • Preferably stamps should be in clear plastic bags inside a sufficiently strong envelope or box.


  • Please post to;

Charity Stamps Direct (The David Ashwell Foundation),

5 Inverleith Gardens,

Edinburgh EH3 5PU

  • Mark the name of the charity to benefit on the outside of the package. Any material received which does not specify a charity, will have the proceeds allocated to a general fund which will then be split pro rata with the other charities.
  • Do not enclose anything else.
  • ONLY donations of stamps should be sent to the "Charity Stamps Direct" address.
