HOME MISSION STAMP COLLECTION: Many thanks for your superb donations of stamps. Dinky Toys and jewellery towards funds for Home Mission. Last Year in excess of £6000 was raised towards projects and other support for smaller Baptist churches just by these collections. Since December we have collected several bags to be forwarded. Please keep up the good work by leaving smaller packets in the red box on the Mission Table or by handing them straight to me. If you have accumulated a large quantity it would be greatly appreciated if you could separate the UK stamps from the overseas ones as the ordinary UK stamps are sold by weight. Most of the others, including UK commemorative stamps are sold to dealers. Any stamp albums should be left complete if possible as they are easier to sort. Well done for all your efforts. Kay Holman.
