Write a letter

Letter writers

Letter writers are people like you, reading this! 

You don’t need a qualification and you can be any age. You can type on a computer or you could go retro and write a good old fashioned letter.  If you have never written one, give it a try, there is something quite special about putting pen to paper. 

All letters are checked by Give…volunteers and then sent once a week to the organisation receiving your letters (by email or post).

Some people have asked about being a penpal, but due to safeguarding and so that we can reach as many isolated people as possible, we have set this up as a one off positive/uplifting letter writing scheme.

It really does make a difference.

“The idea of people looking out for each other in the community is really important to us.  Writing letters is a great way to connect and remind each other that we’re not alone”

Vicky, Clem’s Garden

What happens next?

If you wish to write a letter, please complete the registration form below. After we receive this, we will drop you an email with a person’s name and let you know a little bit about their interests.  If you don’t have the same interests, don’t worry, you can write about what you have been doing or could always do some research if you fancy (you never know you may learn something new in the process!) 

Feel free to be creative ……but words are just perfect!

Once received, our team of volunteers check all letters/emails and we send them out once a week by email and post to the organisation.

We need your help!

We need your help!

This project is amazing, but is due to end at the end of November so we have launched a crowdfunding bid for a Christmas Campaign for the care home residents and charities that Give are involved with and to enable the project to continue.

We know times are tough right now, but if there is any chance you could please contribute just £2 and this fund reaches it's target then you will help Give... spread a whole heap of compassion, kindness and positivity out there across Kirklees.

Thank you!
