Stamp of charity success for Braunton students

Braunton Academy pupils continue success of school’s annual used stamp appeal.

STUDENTS at Braunton Academy have licked the art of charity appeals after collecting countless used postage stamps.

As in previous years, students, family and the community have donated used stamps to the school, which are trimmed by the youngsters before being packaged up and sold on to collectors.

The money raised is donated to Leukaemia Research.

It is a worthwhile appeal that has been held at the school for several years and always sees a huge response from students and the community.
