Join Basingstoke's Amnesty International branch on Wednesday to send a message of hope at Christmas
10:22am Monday 3rd December 2012 in Leisure
BASINGSTOKE’S Amnesty International group will gather in St Michael’s Church Cottage on Wednesday to send a message of hope this Christmas.
The organisation’s annual greetings card campaign involves sending cards to people who will be spending the festive season in prison, because they have acted, without violence, for their beliefs. The campaign also highlights the cases of individuals who have ‘disappeared’ or who have been the victims of political killings and in this case, cards are sent to their families.
If you can spare any time to take part in this simple yet effective campaign, the Basingstoke group warmly welcome you to join them from 7.30pm until 9.30pm as they write cards.
