Stanley Gibbons

Stanley Gibbons have announced their continuing support for the Stamp Active Network with sponsorship of the 2016 national youth stamp competitions. They have been regular supporters of the competitions since 2000 when the British Youth Stamp Championships were first launched.

Commenting on this year’s sponsorship, Martin Peterlechner, Group Marketing Director, said “Stanley Gibbons are delighted to continue to promote youth stamp collecting through Stamp Active. The Championships are the premier event for serious young philatelists with the very best going on to represent the UK in international exhibitions. It is great to see the progress that the young collectors are making.”

Young collectors can begin with the one page competition, progress to the Stamp Active Competition with a minimum of 4 pages and then progress to Championship level with a minimum of 16 pages. The entries in the 2016 British Youth Stamp Championships will be on display at Autumn Stampex along with the entries for the “My Favourite Things” one page national competition.

Stanley Gibbons also support Stamp Active through the free starter pack scheme for organisers of new junior and school stamp clubs.
