ON BEHALF of the Saffron Walden Amnesty International Group, I would like to thank everyone who signed seasonal cards of greetings and solidarity.
Our special thanks go to the rector, the team vicar and the heads of Walden's two secondary schools for facilitating signing sessions, in addition to our own members who manned the two card signing sessions on market days outside the town hall.
In all 530 cards were mailed by the group. This was supplemented by group members sending their own cards.
The Greetings Card Campaign is a worldwide activity for Amnesty International members, friends and supporters.
