This October, we’re asking you to get your group together – perhaps work colleagues, a book group, your running club or just a group of friends – and write letters.
We want your Big Letter Write to be fun, so make sure that as well as writing letters, you enjoy a chat, have a drink and share some food.
In your Big Letter Write kit, we give letter prompts, sample letters and stationery as well as a guide on how to hold your event.
You can write letters, cards or postcards – or all three! And please do get kids involved writing letters and drawing pictures.
When your letters are written, package them up and send them to: Donate A Letter, PO Box 71038, London W4 9HD. We’ll get them delivered to people who will really appreciate them.
“Would it be selfish of me to ask for some more letters? I appreciate there are lots of people in worse situations but it was so lovely to receive my letter.”
– Fiona, letter recipient
“Holding a Big Letter Write is great fun – we chatted, wrote letters and laughed a lot. Afterwards, when we packaged up our letters we really felt we’d achieved something worthwhile. Such a simple way to make a big difference.”
– Claire, Big Letter Write host
