National Stationery Week aims to get Britain writing

19 Apr 2013

National Stationery WeekWe’re supporting National Stationery Week (22-28 April) to highlight the importance of writing by hand to children, and encourage them to put pen and pencil to paper more often.

Organiser Chris Leonard-Morgan says:

"Writing by hand is more important than ever in today’s digital age, and we are very excited to have the opportunity to work with the National Literacy Trust which is the only national charity dedicated to raising literacy levels in the UK, and does amazing work in this area."

Recent research by UniBall, also supporting National Stationery Week, highlighted the benefits of writing to friends and family. Three in five people say receiving a handwritten note makes them feel special.
