90th anniversary stamp book

Celebrating 90 years of YHA adventure

We’re proud to present our special, souvenir stamp book – a memento to mark YHA’s 90th birthday and raise funds for our 90th anniversary appeal. It’s a lovely thing and a limited edition.

Donations will fund free respite breaks for carers, key workers and families struggling because of Covid-19.

The book runs to 32 pages. It is a paperback, with a heavy paper and special finish used for the cover. Stamp books will be delivered by the end of January 2021, well in time for spring adventures.

We’ll post a stamp book to everyone who made a donation to Project90 via this page. Your copy will be sent to your billing address and includes free postage and packaging.

Thank you for donating

Our 90th anniversary stamp book campaign has now closed.

Thank you to all those who donated. Stamp books will be posted by the end of January 2021.

A passport to adventure

The first hostel stamps were issued in 1939 and became popular with members. Some long-time supporters have acquired hugely impressive collections over the years. It’s a tradition we hope will continue. This 90th anniversary book contains pages for stamps, along with a potted history of YHA and a hostel guide.


Donations will support our 90th anniversary appeal to fund free respite breaks for key workers and low-income families, and amazing adventures for young carers. We’re determined to help those worst affected by the pandemic with a break in nature that’ll improve wellbeing and restore hope for the future.
