We have had a message from Valerie Hughes, President of Sutton WI in the Norfolk Federation regarding a pen pal project. Valerie began the project to help link WI members, particularly those who may feel lonely.
Valerie suggested the pen pal project for people, like herself, who enjoy writing, those who don’t have internet access and those who want to have something more than just bills and circulars coming through the post.
The idea was well received and the ‘pen pal exchange’ has been going for over a year now. WI Life published a letter from about it in the November/December 2018 issue, and Valerie now averages about 30 requests a month!
To participate, visit her Survey Monkey poll and add your details.
You will then be matched up, given the details of your pen pal and left to start writing letters.
