At the beginning of June we began our #SummerLetterChallenge, hoping to generate 250 donated letters for cancer patients in hospitals in the UK.
We had till July 31st to hit our target.
Thanks to some amazing letter-writing dedication from our established writers and lots of new writers joining in too, we smashed our target.
We received 340 letters
Thank you to everyone who wrote, promoted the campaign and shared us on social media. The letters came from all over the world and word spread mainly through social media - wonderful to see the digital world supporting good old pen and paper.
Letters ranged from 2 sides of A4 to postcards to beautiful handmade cards but the thing they all had in common was the support they offered to people who needed a little something to brighten their day.
We're chuffed as are 340 cancer patients who now have a bit of summer in their hospital wards.
