Hemel Hempstead MP, Sir Mike Penning, is calling on local people to support UK air ambulance services by collecting used stamps.
The UK’s air ambulance services rely entirely on charitable donations to continue flying and responding to life threatening medical emergencies.
Whether they're British or overseas, new or used, all stamps can be turned into funds to support the nation’s air ambulances.
All you need to do is cut or carefully tear the stamped corner from any envelope or packet that you receive in the post and start a collection.
Once you have a large bundle, bag them up and either send them to:
Air Ambulance - Stamp Appeal, 59 Mitre Copse, Bishopstoke, Near Eastleigh, Hants, SO50 8QE
Or drop them off to Sir Mike’s office at:
The Bury, Queensway, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1HR.
Any queries, please call 01442 251126.

“At this time of year we all receive a large number of cards and packages and this is a great way to support our highly respected and invaluable air ambulance charities.”
Jon Wedger is about to embark on a walk from London to Manchester to raise funds and awareness.
