[CLOSED] Chrisbonham11's 10th Postcrossing Birthday British Isles Lottery #6

Hello British Isles Forum Folks!

21 September 2024 is my 10th Postcrossing birthday! On 21 September 2014, I signed up to Postcrossing. I don’t know now how I found out about the project, alas. What I do know is that I’ve had ten grand years as a Postcrosser, and I’m looking forward to the next ten years! The last three years, during which time I’ve interacted with so many of you British Isles folks in this lovely corner of the Internet, have been especially fun.

I have decided to mark my 10th Postcrossing birthday, and share the celebrations, by hosting a monthly Birthday British Isles Lottery each month this year. Each month I will pick out ten unused postcards on a particular theme from my stash. The draw will take place with the assistance of Postbot on the 21st of each month.

The theme for June’s Birthday British Isles Lottery is: Music

We’re entering the season of music festivals, from Glastonbury, to the BBC Proms, to Reading and Leeds, to the Cambridge Folk Festival. Get your hands on some musically-themed postcards from my stash to get in the mood!

  • I will send a private message to the winner after the draw to request their postal address, unless I already have it from another Forum activity.
  • I will then post the prize stash of postcards to the winner via first class post for the UK / via relevant standard postage rate for the Republic of Ireland, Isle of Man, or Channel Islands.

Good luck! Thank you for celebrating my 10th Postcrossing birthday with me this year! :postcrossing:

Thank you so much Chris @chrisbonham11 for the fantastic music themed 10th Postcrossing - a - Versary Celebration lottery prize! It’s so generous of you to celebrate with us all in this way & I love the cards, thank you :blush::blush::blush: I’m definitely going to need to set up a music section in my postcard storage box!

Also, great stamps, thank you. I soak them off & re use them on postcards that I send in envelopes for whatever reason, so they definitely won’t go to waste x
