That’s the amount of letters, cards and poems we sent off to women in prison in 2022.
Because we believe that in the wise words of Aesop, “no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”

Can you donate Project Hope items?
We wouldn’t be able to do this without the time and compassion from our volunteer letter writers, and much-needed donations of paper, cards, postcards and stamps we receive. If you have generic pretty cards which are blank inside, or stamps, please organise a drop off by emailing email@example.com !
Do you study at Kent University or Canterbury Christ Church University?
We now have special Project Hope letter boxes on campus at CCCU Augustine House and UKC’s Keynes Wellbeing office where you can deliver your cards and letters directly to save you postage to Fort Luton. Letters are collected 1st Monday of the month!
Are you part of a community or faith group?
If you’re part of a community or faith group, writing for Project Hope is a wonderful activity you can do together. If you’re local we can arrange to collect them from you, otherwise just send them down and we will send them on. For more info, email firstname.lastname@example.org !
Ready to write some letters?
We ask that you commit to a minimum of 5 letters a month 😊
"Through writing cards and letters, through our words and colour or art we can give ladies hope that there is another life after prison. By uplifting them when they are most miserable or on the brink of suicide, it makes their day a little brighter knowing that they are not alone."
“Although we don’t know each other I want to say thank you, your card has brightened what was a very lonely time for me, even though there is staff and prisoners around.”
