British Bespoke Pens have partnered with VSO to support its Shakespeare Lives campaign with the British Council. For each limited edition Shakespeare Pen sold, 15% will go towards VSO’s education programming in Africa and Asia.

Making a mark

British Bespoke Pens are a British company that source and produce all their pens using traditional techniques and only the highest quality materials.

Alistair Adams, the managing director of British Bespoke pens said: “What better way to celebrate William Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary than to support this charity which is committed to helping thousands of children in Africa and Asia get the education they deserve. The power of the pen has never meant so much!”
