Sign-up for Letterbox Club 2019 is now closed but some stock is still available...

Please contact the team at letterbox@booktrust.org.uk or call 020 7801 8805, to see if the parcels you'd like to order are still available. The price is £145 per child, including VAT (£138.75 excluding VAT; VAT isn't charged on the books; only the maths games and stationery).

Local authorities and schools have enrolled close to 10,000 children for Letterbox Club 2019. Each participating child will get six colourful parcels of books, number games and stationery – one per month, from May to October.

The parcels are delivered to local authorities and schools, who personalise and distribute them to the children over this six-month period. We do not deliver directly to home addresses.
