Times Territory appeal to help wounded soldiers
HELP for Heroes is this year’s chosen charity for Times Territory funeral directors J.J. Burgess & Sons.
Justin Burgess has decided to raise cash for the charity, which supports members of the Armed Forces wounded in conflict, by turning used stamps into money.
Hoping to raise as much as possible, Mr Burgess is appealing to the public to not throw away used stamps but to, instead, send them to him.
He said: “I have managed to find an outlet that buys all used stamps and then turns those into money.
“The charity can do with all of our support to help badly wounded young men and women get a helping hand to recovery and to be helped back to a normal life.”

The 37-year-old, whose family-run business has funeral homes in Hatfield, WGC, Knebworth, Codicote and St Albans, added: “Every penny is vital and we hope to raise as much as possible throughout 2010.”
Help for Heroes was founded in 2007 and its patrons include Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson, former EastEnders star Ross Kemp and chart-topping singer and former soldier James Blunt.
