THERE’S a chance to snap up a collectable and help a local church with the release of a special set of stamps.

Just 300 of the special first day covers are up for grabs and are available to order now.

The covers which will have seven special stamps celebrating the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible are being sold in aid of Wisbech’s St Peter and St Paul’s Church.

They are priced at £12.50, but there are also a limited number of autographed covers available priced at £19.99.
