Letterbox Club has officially been launched in Scotland at an event at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh on Thursday 3 April 2014.
The event was hosted in partnership with Scottish Book Trust and guest speakers included, Scottish author Lari Don and Dr. Moira Leslie and Dr. Andy Hancock from the University of Edinburgh who evaluated the 2013 Scottish pilot programme.
A film of Scottish children and carers speaking about their Letterbox experience was also shown at the event and featured a video message of support from Lorraine Kelly:
This is a fantastic scheme - it's not just the educational improvement it offers for the children involved, but it's heart-warming to see the emotional impact of receiving these lovely brightly coloured parcels in the post. I'm thrilled this programme is extending to Scotland.
