Our annual online stamp auction in aid of Action for Children is still open, but you’ll need to hurry if you want to get any late bids in before close of play this Friday.

The fantastic selection includes a range of designs from this and previous years’ Special Stamps including David Bowie, Elton John, Marvel, Dad’s ArmyDoctor Who, and Game of Thrones. Our star items this year include Star Wars stamps, signed by actors, Warwick Davis and Naomi Ackie.

Click here to view this year’s auction lots and place your bids. Bidding closes at 5pm on Friday 13 December and all bids must be submitted here.

Our stamp auction is an annual event to raise money for Action for Children’s ground breaking mental health initiative, the Blues Programme.

Since the start of our partnership with Action for Children, colleagues have helped more than 3,600 young people benefit from the programme.

Remember, every penny raised from the auction will be matched by Royal Mail. Winning bidders will be notified by 5pm on Tuesday 17 December.
