Every week we feature one of our writers and ask them why do they write letters.
Craig writes the most wonderful letters, giving the reader a window into his hobbies and life.
This is what he said:
'Because it feels good to know that maybe one of my letters maybe welcomed and make someone smile, or just relax for a few minutes when it might be a traumatic time for them. If it can make a difference for the few minutes then I can't think of a better reward for an hour of my time.
Plus, letter writing has become such a distant memory it is good to practice it with someone who might actually enjoy it.'
