How to sign up for Letterbox Club

Each participating child gets six parcels - one parcel every month, usually from May to October. The parcels are delivered to local authorities and schools, who then personalise and distribute them to the children over this six-month period.

The cost is £145 per child, including VAT (£138.75 without VAT).

Local authorities and schools can use Pupil Premium Plus for looked after children and Pupil Premium for other vulnereable children, to fund Letterbox Club. This year, Letterbox Club will again reach close to 11,000 children across the UK.

Sign-up for Letterbox Club 2017 is open while stock is still available. If you are a local authority or school interested in finding out more about Letterbox Club, please call the team on 020 7801 8805 or email .
