Carys Llewellyn wins Young Collector of the Year 2017

Stamp Active Network are delighted to announce that this year’s recipient of this award is Carys Llewellyn. Carys is a keen collector from South Wales who joined the stamp club at Neyland Junior School when she was 9 years old. Her enthusiasm was soon evident, not only in her own collecting and competition work, but also in her encouragement of other club members and in helping with the running of the club. Following her own success in competitive philately, she also encouraged her sister and two cousins who were soon competing against her.¬†For the last 18 months she has been the Raflet Stamp Club Junior Reporter, providing articles four times a year for their magazine on varied topics of interest to young collectors. Carys is now a member of her secondary school stamp club, her church stamp club, and has also addressed her local philatelic society on her Winter Sports competitive entry.

We congratulate Carys on receiving this award and wish her a long and rewarding philatelic career. The presentation will be made at Autumn Stampex.
