We’re pleased to announce our ongoing support for the Stamp Active Network with a sponsorship for the 2016 British Youth Championship. This will be our 16th year supporting the ogranisation and we foresee many many more years of collaboration ahead. Stamp Active Network are an organisation solely dedicated to promoting stamp collecting and philately to young people.
Commenting on this year’s sponsorship, Martin Peterlechner, Group Marketing Director, said “Stanley Gibbons are delighted to continue to promote youth stamp collecting through Stamp Active. The Championships are the premier event for serious young philatelists with the very best going on to represent the UK in international exhibitions. It is great to see the progress that the young collectors are making.”
Stamp collecting is a unique hobby for kids as it not only expands their horizons and instills in them a sense of confidence; they’ll be ahead of the game in academic studies as they’ll learn about the history and geography of a breadth of different countries.
We continue to show our encouragement by supporting through the free starter pack scheme for organisers of new junior and school stamp clubs.
