Valerie is backing Royal Mail’s scheme to help those in reciept of Employment and Support Allowance, Pension Credit or incapacity benefit to purchase stamps in the run up to Christmas.
“Royal Mail have written to me about their Christmas Stamp scheme and I wanted to let everyone know about it. The scheme is designed to help people who receive Pension Credit, Employment and Support Allowance or Incapacity Benefit to purchase stamps in the run up to Christmas. Customers will be able to purchase a total of 36 First and Second Class stamps at last year’s prices in a single transaction. This offer will be available from all Post Office branches in the UK and will help people to send post at the busiest time of the year.”
Valerie said: “I am pleased Royal Mail have recognized the difficulties low income households face. These households will now able to take part in celebrating Christmas but keep down their costs.”
The scheme runs from 6 November to 24 December 2012.
To be eligible, individuals need to be in receipt of Pension Credit, Employment and Support Allowance or Incapacity Benefit. For full details of the offer, please press here
