Stationery fun with Roald Dahl charity

April 27, 2017

We love stationery. We love supporting Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity. So, we were more than happy to combine the two at the London Stationery Show!

London Stationery Day

This week (24-30 April) is National Stationery Week, celebrating all the reasons why writing matters. It’s an event that we are happy to sponsor again this year, as it’s a great way to encourage everyone to grab a pen and paper and get their imagination flowing! You can find out why we believe writing is so important and learn some top tips in our creative writing course.

Caroline and Emily from Explore Learning went along to the London Stationery Show with Marvin, the mascot from Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity! They spoke to lots of great exhibitors at the show, checking out the latest pencil case fillers and to raise awareness of the charity – which helps to make life better for seriously ill children in the UK.

The great news is that so many of the exhibitors donated their leftover stock at the end of the show to Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, which are being distributed to seriously ill children and young people being cared for by Roald Dahl’s specialist children’s nurses across the UK!

You can find out more about how the donations will be used and about the great work of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity, here.
