What is an ENVELOPE OF ENTERTAINMENT?
It's a package of puzzles, jokes, quizzes and creative ideas, posted with care to brighten someone's day.
Not everyone can or wants to access technology - so although WhatsApp and video chats help many connect, other people can be left feeling isolated.
Envelopes of Entertainment was started in Coventry by community activist Jen and her son to ensure that no-one was forgotten during lockdown in 2020. By that summer, they'd distributed packages to over 120 people.
In 2021, Envelopes of Entertainment is expanding its teams of volunteers to make new connections and continue to tackle loneliness. To help make this possible we're asking for donations towards the costs of materials and postage - especially as the price of stamps is due to rise on 1 January.
Your contribution could make a real difference to people's lives in Coventry.
"Due to the Coronavirus restrictions I've not been able to visit my mother who lives alone and in a different city/tier to me. Envelopes of Entertainment has been fantastic. She loves receiving them and completing the activities and reading the news of others who are in a similar situation to her. It's a great way to get the community involved in helping others who are alone and isolated, not just during the current lockdown, but whenever people are alone and lonely. Thank you E of E!"
"When you're stuck in lock down and you receive a lovely letter through the post. Thank you Noah and Jen, what a lovely thing to do"
