Callum Wood gets The Anne Dummer Award

006 Callum Wood

Stamp Active Network has presented the 2014 Anne Dummer Trophy to Callum Wood from Blackpool as their “Young Collector of the Year”. The Trophy, sponsored by Midpex, is given in memory of the late Anne Dummer who was a past organiser of Kidstamps and ran the very successful Kettering Junior Stamp Club for many years.

Callum was selected to receive the award because, he himself, has run two stamp clubs. He started the Montgomery High Stamp Club, Blackpool and also takes an active part in the local library stamp club. In the library club Callum is “an absolute star” according to the librarian who runs the club.  He is interested in everything; he helps others; he encourages them all to go onto the Stamp Active website and join Kidstamps (of which he is a member).  He has also brought others to the stamp club that operated with only two of them to start with and has now gone up to seven.  He is a whiz on the computer; does anything that is asked of him and enjoys going to stamp fairs.  He has also produced some excellent display sheets.

Callum visited Autumn Stampex with his parents and was presented with the Trophy by John Davies, Chairman of the Stamp Active Network. He also received the gift of a Dinosaur Canvas Print and T shirt from Royal Mail’s Fraser Chisholm.
