The amount of money each charity receives will be in direct proportion to

exactly half of all the tokens). Each month, Waitrose staff vote on which
three charity applications will be supported.
To be considered for a donation, good causes and
charities are asked to get in touch with their local Waitrose branch.
If there is a branch of Waitrose near you, please suggest CRY as one of the

recycling donated items to the charities nominated by the people donating
the recyclable items. That is, as a CRY supporter, you can send
specific recyclable items (listed below) to "Stamps N All" and CRY
will get the proceeds from the recycling of your specific donation.
"Stamps N All" accept the following:
and stamp collections - used or unused. If they
are on envelopes or cards, please leave about half a centimetre
around the edges. Please don't peel off stamps - it
reduces their value. If the stamps are on envelopes or
cards postmarked before 1970, do not remove them! This is
because they can be worth more as a collectible item if still
complete on the envelope.
and first-day covers - old, interesting-looking and
even with their letters in!
- with or without stamps on, but please don't remove stamps from
postcards if they are on them.
cards and WW1 silk cards.
bank notes - old or new, from anywhere in the world,
obsolete or otherwise. Maybe unspent holiday currency?
metals and old keys - including broken jewellery, old
trophies, gold, silver; and 'mystery keys' from the bottoms of
Watches, medals, badges.

recycling should be posted to:
