FACET college for adults with learning difficulties has been donated a box of postcards which they are aware could have collectors item stamps on them but needs help to dig out the valuable ones ready to list on ebay.

Kris Harrold, manager of the March college in Marwick Road, said: “When we were donated these postcards we were really grateful as we know there will be some special stamps on some of them but we desperately need help from somebody out there who can spot them for us.

“Our students enjoy ebay classes as part of our curriculum where they learn to list in the best categories, how to photograph things in the best lights with good backgrounds to make sure donated items get as many views as possible.

“It all helps make money for the college as we run on a charitable basis.”
