Southend Amnesty Group Wielding Pens at the Balmoral Centre, Westcliff-on-Sea

Glad to report that we had a successful Write for Rights event on Saturday 12th December at the Balmoral Centre. In all, 161 cards and letters were written and 14 e-mails were sent off as well as 5 printed cards on behalf of Waleed Abu al-Khair. Every case in Amnesty’s Write for Rights leaflet got a card or letter sent to them and on their behalf.

There were 22 of us at the Balmoral Centre and donations towards postage (in the collection box and through the post) came to almost £150. Thank you to everybody who came and wrote cards and letters or contributed to our postage costs.

And best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. Hope to see you at the meeting on 14th January and if you want to write more cards, etc., the WfR campaign runs till 31st December and all the details are at: https://www.amnesty.org.uk/issues/Write-for-Rights-2015
