Halsbury Travel Starts a New Chapter

It’s International Literacy Day, which seems like the perfect day to tell you our big news!

Halsbury Travel has new owners! Literacy Capital is an investment firm with a unique charitable objective to advance the education of children in the United Kingdom by promoting and supporting the development of literacy.

One of the key ways they do this is by donating 0.9% of their net assets every year to literacy charities, like BookMark, whose aim is to get every child reading. Since their creation in 2017, Literacy Capital have donated over £3.8 million.

We’re really excited to start this new chapter with Literacy Capital, as it means that not only can we continue to help teachers to provide students with unforgettable educational experiences on school trips, we’ll also be contributing to the development of literacy in the UK.

It’s important to say that, although our owners may have changed, our values and mission remain the same and you will, of course, still enjoy the friendly, personalised service you’re used to.

Our dynamic team of former teachers and school travel specialists remain on-hand at all times to support you every step of the way with your school trip, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any further information or would like to request a tailor-made quote.
