VOLUNTEERS at Horfield Baptist Church’s community café are calling on locals to donate used postage stamps.

The stamps will help raise money for the Baptist Missionary Society (BMS) which works across four continents, supporting development, disaster relief, education, health services and church communities.

Used postage stamps - with at least 5mm of paper around them - can be dropped into the church's Fresh Ground Cafe from 10am to 2pm, Monday to Friday.

Horfield Baptist Church is supporting the BMS Gulu Project in northern Uganda, which helps with agricultural improvements, church development, the rebuilding of communities after civil war, and establishing people's land rights and legal title.

Adrian Brown, from the church, said: “Any used stamps we receive will make a big difference and we’ll be grateful to anyone who brings them in.

"We also hope it’ll mean more people finding out about what our community café has to offer."
