Legacy giving

By generously adding Henshaws to your will, your gift will mean that we will still be there for people turning to Henshaws for years to come.

Donate used stamps

Cutting out and donating your used stamps can help us to raise funds by recycling them. It’s an easy way of donating, and it won’t cost you a penny!
