Friends with pens – over 55s and student penpals

Do you enjoy writing good old-fashioned letters? If the answer is yes then you might be interested in getting involved with Friends with Pens.

Friends with Pens provides Bristol residents aged 55 years and over and university students the chance to write to a pen pal. The project aims to encourage new friendships by connecting people from various walks of life. It offers people the chance to share their stories and experiences with others and is suitable for anyone who enjoys letter writing.

What? An inter-generational pen pal scheme between people in the Bristol community aged over 55 and University
of Bristol students.

When? We will send you more information and once you have signed up and been matched, you can expect to hear from your pen pal in November.

Who? If you are older than 55, live in Bristol and enjoy letter writing, this is suitable for you.

If you are interested in hearing more or getting involved contact Sophie from Bristol Hub.
