Ross puts stamp on fundraising for mobility

LIONS Club member Ross Paine, of Peregian Springs, was inspired by the sight of a severely disabled child being fitted with his first walking device to start fundraising with stamps for the Australian Lions Children's Mobility Foundation.

The club handles up to 400kg of clipped stamps every year, and Ross is looking for more stamps.

The money donated is used to purchase walking frames for children born with cerebral palsy.

"We ask people sending stamps to clip around the stamp leaving about 4mm (1/8") of paper around the stamp. Not too close and not too much paper either. Every stamp donated is sent to auction and every cent raised is passed on to the Foundation."

"We will also happily accept unwanted collections, first day covers, post office packs in fact any items of philatelic interest."
