Celebrities Push The Envelope On Behalf of the National Literacy Trust
Chiswick born Phil Collins leads the way with this "Don't Play....Read" contribution
Phil Collins and a host of other celebrities have been using their creativity to design envelopes and raise money for the National Literacy Trust in the third Pitney Bowes ‘Pushing The Envelope’ charity auction.
The campaign sees some of Britain’s favourite actors, writers, illustrators, musicians and sports people put pen to envelope in aid of the independent charity dedicated to improving the literacy of the nation.
The envelopes will be auctioned on eBay starting 10th October at 11am and running for 10 days. All funds raised will be donated to the National Literacy Trust.
Last year, ‘Pushing The Envelope’ raised £11,000 for the charity and this year sponsors Pitney Bowes hope to exceed this amount. With more celebrities committed to the cause and further entries yet to be submitted, more than 50 designs are anticipated to be available in total.
