Send support at letter writing day

AMNESTY International supporters will celebrate ‘Write for Rights Day’ at Todmorden Library on Saturday.

Those attending the event from 10am until 2pm will have an opportunity to write a greetings card to send to someone in the world who is in prison because they hold particular religious or political beliefs to which the authorities object.

A spokesperson said: “We can’t free them, but we can send them messages of comfort and hope.”

The event follows a talk about the work of Amnesty International at a recent meeting of Todmorden U3A.
