Some prizes for our posters.

30 June 2007

Hello everyone,

Post Pals is busy as ever – alongside the post being sent by the public, we also send out lots of things. 105 parcels were posted by us in just one week in June and these were kindly funded by people donating through our PayPal button. At the end of May, Post Pals was featured in a documentary on BBC4, lots of people took the time to log on here and send some messages to Pals and a few have offered to volunteer – so a big thank you to them.

We are giving away 2 vouchers this month, a £10 Tesco voucher (very kindly donated by them) and a £5 Mcdonalds voucher (donated by Kat) to 2 people drawn at random. To be in with a chance of receiving one of them, just send a card, letter or little gift to a Pal, and mark it on our mail stats page. At the end of July we will contact the lucky winners. Good Luck!

This month’s photograph was taken in Post Pals’ early days. It’s Nicole B after someone very kindly crossed stitched her name and as you can tell she was more than delighted with it. A lady called Susan runs an egroup (not affiliated with Post Pals) for people who like doing all manor of crafts from cross stitch to card making to knitting, they make things for the Pals and share their work and idea’s with each other.

We can’t thank all the people out there who were so thoughtful and kind enough to send Megs those special little (and some not so little) packages. It really cheered her up, particularly on the down days when it seemed that getting home was never going to happen.
