I’m incredibly proud to be a Patron of the Letterbox Club. It’s wonderful that looked-after children can receive crucial support through their special book and maths parcels, delivered once a month. I’m particularly pleased that there are now parcels containing a delightful book selection for older children aged 11-13 and know it will be much appreciated.

I have seen this project go from strength to strength. I've seen the delight on the faces of the children, opening their colourful packages. I've seen them play the games with friends and carers, listen to the books, read the books and talk with great enthusiasm about the joy of being a member of the Letterbox Club.

Letterbox Club's Northern Ireland patron, Malachy Doyle

The Letterbox Club is a great idea. Every child in care deserves to receive books. That the books come through the post in an envelope addressed to the individual child is just the best! I wish The Letterbox Club had been around for the hundreds of young people that I came across when I was in care.

I think the Letterbox Club is such an exciting and worthwhile project. It’s great that looked-after children get their own special parcel of books and stationery and stickers. It’s like a little birthday present every month. I’m delighted to be involved - I think it’s a wonderful way of introducing children to the joys of reading.

I'm delighted to be a patron of the Letterbox Club in Northern Ireland. I've seen for myself the excitement the children get on receiving their parcels. We've met up on Fostering Achievement Fun Days in Belfast and Omagh, where I've had great fun chatting to them, reading them my stories and even dancing with them. The Letterbox Club is doing fantastic work and I hope it goes from strength to strength.

A great notion and I am glad to be part of it.
