Stamps and Coins for Charity

Dear editor

Sincere thanks to all your readers who send me stamps and unwanted currency (foreign and Irish) for charity. I send the stamps to “The Lullaby Trust” (Cot death research and support), which receives no official funding for its invaluable work. They most recently raised just under £300 from selling these stamps on to a dealer, and so unwanted stamps, no matter how few in number, do make a difference to their fundraising efforts.

In addition, I managed to raise just over €100 last year from unwanted covertible currency (including old Irish punts) and donated this to Oxfam Ireland ‘Unwrapped’ to purchase necessities for poverty-stricken villagers in the developing world, including the provision of ‘safe’ drinking water. Obsolete currency is sent to ‘Cancer Research’ for selling to collectors in their shops to raise funds for their good cause.

Continued thanks therefore to all those who continue to support my fundraising efforts on behalf of these three charities. Every little helps, so please don’t throw away the stamps off your letters or any unwanted foreign or Irish coins or banknotes (new or old).

Thanks are particularly due to the following organisations for their regular major support, without which these appeals would have dried up long ago: Waterford Institute of Technology, Waterford University Hospital, Christ Church Cathedral and the DSCFA, in addition to various other companies and the many private individuals too numerous to mention who continue to send their stamps and coins in considerable quantity to help these worthy causes.

Stamps (both Irish and foreign - please leave these on the backing paper or piece of envelope if they are used, or else send new ones as they are, since torn or damaged stamps are valueless and have to be thrown away) and unwanted foreign and Irish coins, banks notes and any unwanted Euro currency can be left for me either at Christ Church Cathedral (there is a box for stamps at the back of the building) or W.I.T. (College Street campus).

Grateful thanks to Liam Hennebry of ‘Hennebry’s Camera Shop’ near the GPO on The Quay in Waterford who has been taking in coins and stamps on my behalf for many years but is now retiring - I wish him a long and healthy retirement.

Thanks you for your consideration in this matter.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. David J. Rhodes

    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
