Post Pals

This opportunity is ongoing, with no end date.

Post Pals is an on-campus, student-led project, where students come together to create cards, letters, and gifts for seriously ill children and their siblings. Post Pals was a charity set up by a group of teenagers who were very ill themselves; and knew how happy receiving kind post would make them.

So if you're creative; or if you're not creative at all but would like to write to some lovely children and put a smile on their face, apply now!
