Used Postage Stamps – Help us to Stamp out Cruelty
Collecting used postage stamps, at home, work or school, is a really simple and effective way to raise money for Bransby Horses. In 2016 alone, we raised a huge £66,349.71 through the scheme! Why not ask your friends and colleagues to collect them too?
Simply cut off the corner of the envelope with the stamp on (taking care not to cut the actual stamp). Once you have a small collection, please put them in an envelope and send to: Stamp Appeal, Bransby Horses, Bransby, LINCOLN, LN1 2PH. Alternatively, you can drop them off at our Lincolnshire Visitor Centre.
Why not print our poster (click here) and display it at your chosen collection place, along with a box for people to leave their stamps?
Let us know you are helping to stamp out cruelty on social media: #StampsforHorses
Give as you Live – Raise money for us, for free – just by shopping online
Did you know that you can support us every time you shop online at over 3,000 retailers – without spending a penny extra?
It’s true! Give as you Live works with more than 3,000 top retailers including Amazon, John Lewis and Expedia, to turn a percentage of every penny you spend online into a donation to us. The retailer makes the donation on your behalf, so it won’t cost you a penny extra.
All you have to do is sign up to Bransby Horses through Give as you Live.
eBay – Maximising Sales & Charitable giving for eBay Sellers
We have joined forces with eBay and Mission Fish to sell items on eBay to raise funds. This enables us to maximise the potential to generate the highest price for donated, often niche items, on eBay by reaching a wider market. Another way to support us via eBay is to sell your own items and donate a percentage of the profit to Bransby Horses. This can be anything from 10% to 100%. Also when you purchase items you can donate to us at the point of checkout if you wish.
Urgently Wanted – Items to sell on eBay. If you have any items you wish to donate please send to: eBay Dept., Bransby Horses, Bransby, LINCOLN, LN1 2PH.
You might be surprised what you find if you have a spring clean!
