Tom Lawson is Young Collector of the Year 2015


The committee of Stamp Active Network have great pleasure in announcing that this year’s recipient of the Anne Dummer Award for Young Collector of the Year is Thomas Leslie Lawson. Starting at the age of 7 with the active support of his mother and grandfather, he became an enthusiastic member of the stamp collecting scene. He soon branched out into stamp dealing and is a regular stall holder at the Orpington Stamp and Postcard Fair. His activities have created a lot of interest in the philatelic press with the “ABPS” News and Stamp Magazine according him the title of youngest stamp dealer in Britain and in the world respectively. Tom is also a keen member of Kidstamps and a regular visitor to the Stamp Active stall twice yearly at Stampex.  The presentation of the trophy will be made, appropriately, at Autumn Stampex on Saturday 19th September at 1.30pm at the Stamp Active stand.
