National Stationery Week sponsor Maped Helix is marking the occasion by distributing free stationery to children across the Midlands.
From April 25 to May 1, the stationery manufacturer is giving all school trips to the Black Country Living Museum a free stationery pack to promote the importance of handwriting.
Lianne Fletcher, marketing manager at Maped Helix, said: “Our history is ingrained in the West Midlands and we feel strongly about our heritage in the region. It only seemed appropriate for ourselves and Black Country Living Museum to celebrate this history together.”
She added: “We always look for fresh new ways to engage and collaborate with schools and communities through learning experiences. This partnership with such a popular attraction was the perfect opportunity to do just that and help to educate children in our area.”
