There are so many ways to help animals around the world with SPANA, here are a few ideas and go to our partners page for even more!
eBay for Charity
When selling items on eBay you can donate part of your earnings to SPANA. Often supporters offer to donate us their goods to sell but we cannot do so due to difficulties with administration and storage, so selling your items via eBay is the perfect alternative.
Visit www.ebay.co.uk/ebayforcharity for more information.
Recycling for SPANA
• Any jewellery – gold, silver, costume jewellery, watches, broken and damaged items (like odd earrings, snapped chains or items with missing stones).
• Any unwanted banknotes – old and new, UK and foreign banknotes, including all the pre Euro notes that are now worthless to you.
If you would like to send your jewellery and banknote recycling to us, simply wrap, pack and send! Use your own envelope or jiffy bag and post free of charge to:
*Please do not send coins to the freepost address above as unfortunately the postage costs will far outweigh your donation.
Donate your stamps
One of SPANA’s valued supporters has agreed to take on the time-consuming task of processing and selling used stamps to raise some much-needed funds for SPANA. If you’d like to contribute, please cut your stamps from the envelope and leave ¼ inch around the stamp to make them easier to process. Please do not tear around the stamps as this damages them and makes them worthless to sell on.
Please send all stamps to:
7 Rookery Close
If you would like to know they have arrived safely, please include a stamped addressed envelope. Please check the packet size and weight before you send any packages as any that arrive underpaid will have to be paid for by SPANA funds.
Donate your postcards
Do you have any used postcards lying around at home? By sending them on you can help raise funds for working animals.
Please send postcards to:
Miss J Webb
18 Hammonds Way
Miss Webb will kindly sell them on to collectors and send the proceeds to SPANA.
Buy exclusive Ivor the Engine stamps
Everyone’s favourite little green train from the “top left hand corner of Wales” has turned 50!
To celebrate his birthday SPANA has teamed up with leading stamp collectors specialists Buckingham Covers to produce a charming and highly-collectable limited edition sheet of Royal Mail stamps.
This is not the first time working animals cross paths with Ivor. Bluebell the donkey was a valuable character in the series. Like all donkeys Bluebell was gentle and hard-working. The stamps come together with wonderful artwork of the series from creator Peter Firmin.
Only 1959 sheets will be in existence worldwide and at least £2.00 from every sale go directly to SPANA.
Peter, a loyal supporter of SPANA, is personally signing a limited number of the sheets to help raise even more funds.
They are an absolute must-have for anyone who loves Ivor and will make a great addition to any collection of TV memorabilia. For more information and to order please visit Buckingham Covers’ site.
