EMMS International runs a Stamp Bureau, which collects and sells stamps to help raise funds for the wide range of medical mission work in which it is involved. The Stamp Bureau is managed by a team of volunteers, who are experienced philatelists.
To help us, please send us your stamps. We accept all stamps from the UK, particularly high value and pictorial stamps, from the UK, and all overseas stamps. It helps us if you would cut them from the envelope, ensuring that approximately 1cm, or half an inch, of paper is left all round. Please be careful when you remove the stamps as damaged ones have little or no value.
As well as accepting used, and mint condition, stamps EMMS International will also accept old stamp albums and collections which may have been lying in a drawer or cupboard. These are sold to collectors or auctioned to raise funds. Collectors are always pleased to see old, rare or unusual stamps. If you, or members of your family, have old albums then please consider sending them to us.
If you think the collection is valuable then it is helpful if it could be delivered by hand, by recorded or registered post, or by courier.
You can also help by telling people about the work of the Stamp Bureau and letting them know that, if they are collectors, they can purchase good quality stamps from us.
