The Art of Letter Writing

We’re asking for your support to help raise the funds for a wonderful new project: The Art of Letter Writing.

The project has been developed in partnership with Age UK groups in Bakewell, Hope and Hulland Ward, some of the more remote and isolated areas in rural Derbyshire.
The project will explore reminiscence and letter writing, designed to appeal to the interests, abilities and needs of members and to help support their mental health, emotional health, and supporting social interaction between participants, groups, and their friends and families.

By taking part in the month long project, participants will each write and have the pleasure of receiving a letter. Reminiscence and conversations will be encouraged throughout. A finale session will bring members from each of the communities together, along with their friends and families, to celebrate their work in an exhibition. This will give all participants a new opportunity for social interaction and encourage a sense of pride, confidence and success as they share their achievements together.
