John Davies, Chairman of Stamp Active, commented “We have, once again, been well supported at a major London Show by the PTS and our Dealer Patrons as well as receiving lots of donations from collectors to enable us to create a fun activity area. We hope the continuing prize draw will continue to be an additional incentive to parents and grandparents to “Bring a Child to Stampex” in September and February. Young Collectors have a great time and really enjoy the activities. We just want to see many more come along.“
