No primary category set

Royal Mail have introduced a ‘laughing postbox,’ which responds to posted email by delivering a number of jokes via audio recorded by Hal Cruttenden. The initiative is launched ahead of the Red Nose Day, 15th of March, in support of Comic Relief, dedicated to ending child poverty, both in the US and in some of the poorest communities in the world.

The special edition laughing postbox is situated close to near BBC Headquarters in London, Broadcasting House at: 1-2 Langham Place, London, W1B 3DE. It will be in place from the 8th of March until 22nd of March 2019.

There will also be a special Red Nose Day postmark that Royal Mail will be distributing across stamped UK mail, driving awareness in the lead up to the night of TV which will be broadcast live on BBC One on Friday 15th of March.

In the process of delivering to around 30 million addresses in the UK, six days a week, we really enjoy adding a little extra fun and laughter to the posting of mail – especially when it is in support for such a great cause.”
– spokesperson, Royal Mail

We are extremely grateful for Royal Mail’s support on this year’s campaign. The postmark is a lovely way to drive awareness ahead of Red Nose Day.”
– Liz Warner, chief executive officer, Comic Relief
