Time running out to buy Royal Mail stamp celebrating Jonnie Peacock’s Paralympic success

TIME is running out to buy Royal Mail’s gold medal stamp that celebrates the London 2012 success of Fenland Paralympian Jonnie Peacock.

Royal Mail issued 63 stamps following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games to recognise the success of TeamGB’s athletes.

Among those stamps was one celebrating the success of Peacock, from Doddington, who won gold in the T44 100m at the Paralympics.

However, all London 2012 licenses, including Royal Mail’s, will lapse on December 31 - meaning the stamps will be withdrawn from sale on that date.

Andrew Hammond, Royal Mail’s managing director of stamps and collectibles, said that time was running out for those who had not bought the stamps and wanted to.

He said: “We think there are a lot of people who have bought some and now want the full set. They’ve only got until December 31 to complete their collection.”

The stamps can be bought online at www.royalmail.com/goldmedalstamps
