Christmas card project

Christmas Angels 2019

Christmas Angels is a project to help reduce isolation at a time of year that can be very lonely for some. This card scheme enables people with M.E. to send cards to each other via the Action for M.E. office and all that it costs is the price of a card and a stamp.

“Christmas Angels is such a lovely way to be in touch with others in the same boat at that time of year.” - Elizabeth

Every year we are overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness and care that people take when creating their cards and we often are told how much of an impact these small gestures have. You can send as many or as few as you want – and if you are too unwell to send a card then that’s absolutely fine – you can still receive them.

It's really easy to get involved! All that you need to do is send us an email telling us your name, address and phone number. Once you have done this, we will be in touch with more information. We will also be sending those who are severely effected hand-crafted angels made by those within our community. If you are severely effected, or would like to nominate someone who is, please include this in your email.

We’re also accepting donations of knitted angels that we will be gifting to the most severely affected in our community. You can learn more about our Knit an Angel project here. In order to receive an angel, you or the person you have nominated need to sign up to Christmas Angels. Please send us your knitted angels and sign up before the end of November.
