It was over 30 years ago now, having just returned from holiday, when I got the call with the most exciting of news. I was an Aunt!! The most beautiful bundle of joy had arrived and her name was Maria.
Needless to say everyone wanted her first Christmas to be magical and off I went in search of the perfect letter from Father Christmas. Sadly the search proved fruitless as the only thing to be found was a pro-forma letter from Royal Mail. I was sure I could write something better myself. So I did. And that was how it all began.
With the arrival of another niece, the gorgeous Ashley and with requests from friends and family, letter writing became a large part of my life and soon the Tooth Fairy came knocking .....along with the Birthday Fairy, Friendship Fairy, Easter Bunny & more. Over the ensuing years my letters found their way not only the length and breadth of the United Kingdom, but worldwide. A decision was made to give up my 'proper job' and commit fully to what I loved doing and before I knew it Special Letters, the business, was born and with Harrods, Hamley's, Past Times, Lastminute.com, Great Little Trading Company & Letterbox (to name but a few) all stocking variations of my letters at various times over the years the rest, as they say, is history.
And here I am today. Over 30 years later. A women of a certain age, who really should be thinking about retirement (tried it twice, didn't like it, missed writing the letters too much!) and although Special Letters is a much pared down version of what it once was, having made the decision several years ago to withdraw from supplying the retail sector, it's core values are still the same. Attention to detail. To provide a genuinely personal service and of course for children everywhere, to help try and keep the magic alive, for just a little longer!
