Bring a Child to Stampex

In order to try to attract more young people to our hobby, and Stampex in particular, the Stamp Active Network will be offering a new prize draw at Spring Stampex 2014. A ticket will be given to any adult who brings a person under 18 to the Stamp Active area during the course of the Show. This will be drawn after the free youth auction on Saturday.

Stamp Active is the UK’s leading voluntary organisation promoting stamp collecting to young people. It provides activities throughout the Show and a free children’s auction on Saturday where children can exchange the points they get for completing the activities for prizes in the auction. There will be a prize draw for the youngsters for an 1840 Twopenny Blue provided by Robin Cassell of Mulready Philatelics and Doug McGill of My Penny Blacks at the 2014 Spring Stampex.

┬áPTS members are invited to donate quality items for a gift pack for the adults “Bring a Child to Satmpex” Grand Draw.

Donations can be sent to: Stamp Active Network, 3 Longfellow Road, Banbury OX16 9LB

These will be acknowledged on the new Stamp Active website and other publicity prior to the Show.

Spring Stampex 2014 takes place from 19th to 22nd February at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London
