We team up with Smythson and their beautiful Christmas cards

01 Nov 2022

We’re partnering with Smythson, the luxury stationery and leather goods retailer, who’ll make a donation to us with every pack of Christmas cards they sell, online or in-store.

For both writer and recipient, even the most wittily worded email or carefully crafted text message will never quite compare to a handwritten Christmas card - a longstanding and charming routine and ritual we turn to every year.

“We’re delighted Smythson have chosen to support us as part of their festive campaign. Sadly, 1 in 5 11-year-olds in England leave primary school unable to write well, rising to 1 in 3 among disadvantaged children. Donations from Smythson’s Christmas cards will allow us to support the reading, writing, listening and speaking skills of children and young people who most need our help.”

Jonathan Douglas CBE, Chief Executive of the National Literacy Trust

“Everyone at Smythson feels ever so proud to be partnering with the National Literacy Trust, whose work is incredibly crucial, now more than ever.”

Luc Goidadin, Creative Director of Smythson

Smythson Christmas cards are now online and in-store.
