For those alone or ill at Christmas the isolation felt can be even more pronounced, leading to social anxiety and loneliness. Writing a letter or card can help alleviate this.

These samples will hopefully provide the perfect inspiration for a letter or card you may want to write for our Donate a Letter campaign this year, or for those you write to loved ones this year.


I hope this note finds you in good spirits. I saw a website that suggested writing to someone who is poorly can really help them even though we may never meet.

I hope this is true. It struck me as i have been writing to myself for 6 years. Ever since I had an illness of our own.

Each year I put Christmas lights on the outside of the house. When I've finished I write a letter to myself reflecting on the year just gone and my hopes for the year ahead. I put it into the lights box knowing I'll read it a year later.

Things never turn out the way I thought they would. Somehow I've always got,through another year and whatever challenges arise have been met with a mix of determination and humour. I hope this message might encourage you to look forward and reflect on how much you've already overcome.

Best wishes


Just want to wish you a very peaceful Christmas & a better New Year.

However you're spending it, whether in hospital or at home having treatment, I just want you to know I'm thinking about whoever gets this card and send you so many warm wishes.

All my very best,
