Come and have tea and cakes in the Red Hall, this Saturday between 2pm and 5pm!

It’s the Amnesty Greeting Card campaign, held every year to send cards to people imprisoned for their beliefs. You choose the card and the person to receive it, give a donation towards sending it and Amnesty sends them.

The more cards the prisoners get the better – it shows them – and their governments – that they are not forgotten.

Just pop in or stay for lots of cake!

This is what the Amnesty website says about the campaign:

Sending a card with a simple, personal greeting is a powerful way to show support for someone facing human rights abuse.

Every card matters. For prisoners of conscience, for families whose relatives have disappeared, for people in danger for defending human rights, the cards bring comfort and hope; they offer encouragement and support, and raise spirits. Above
all they are a sign that people care.

The cards can also make an impression on police officers, prison staff and political authorities - and that can help to improve the way they treat individuals at risk.

It is simple to take part.  Just follow the advice given with each case and you can be sure that your message of warmth, care and support will make a real difference.

Use your freedom of expression to stand up for the freedom of others - and encourage friends and family to do the same.
