As part of TEAM’s ongoing Wrexham project, we are launching a call out for people across Wales to connect with those in the community who are isolated, vulnerable and/or experiencing homelessness.
The longer that this period of isolation continues, we are conscious that more people will experience loneliness, especially those without access to digital means of connecting. We’re inviting you to write letters to them, and encourage you to get as creative as possible. You may want to add a poem, painting or puzzle, anything to brighten their day and spread some joy. Consider the kind of messages you would like to receive right now – messages to inspire hope, positivity and connection.
No 22 and CAIS have been distributing hot meals to the homeless community in Wrexham and TEAM are really pleased to provide the cakes and desserts to accompany them. Working together, we are able to ensure that your letters reach those who are most in need.
Please send them to the below address. Alternatively, please email your letters/ photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll print them off and share them.

No 22 is part of the Suspended Coffees movement and runs a #payitforward initiative, helping those in their local community to help one another. You can find out more about their work on their website here:
In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we cannot accept packages from households that are self-isolating due to symptoms. Please be mindful that the virus stays infectious for around 24 hours on paper/cardboard and 72 hours on plastic.
Get in touch with us if you’ve got any questions. Please don’t include any personal information in your packages. This is a one-way communication so there’ll be no reply but rest assured that the recipient will be extremely grateful. Packages will be checked before distribution.
Don’t forget to share pictures of your packages with us by tagging #ntwTEAM on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so we can offer our thanks and keep you posted on how your generosity is helping people in Wrexham through this crisis.
