Carys Receives Top Award

Carys Llewellyn from West Wales was presented with the Anne Dummer Trophy as our Young Collector of the Year 2017 at Autumn Stampex. The award, which is sponsored by Midpex, was presented by Rob Swain, Publisher, from Stanley Gibbons. Carys received a trophy, a Penny Black cover donated by Ian Park of Beckett Philatelics and a Teddy Bear donated by Royal Mail. Commenting on the award, John Davies, Chairman of Stamp Active, said “Carys has been a wonderful ambassador for the hobby. She has built a fine collection but has also played a key part in helping others in local junior clubs.”
