Write a Letter, Send a Smile











Before email, people used to write letters to keep in touch. A handwritten letter or card is something to cherish and a joy to receive.

For some of the older, housebound and more isolated members of our church family an occasional letter, card or message to let them know that someone is thinking of them and connecting them to the outside world would mean a great deal.

So as part of our commitment to care for all of our church family we want to encourage people to write letters or cards or, if you prefer to do this electronically, send us a message by email which we can print off. We’ll then pass these on.

Write about what you’re up to, or something that interests you, or anything that reminds them that others are thinking of them.

Below is a list of those we are writing to. If you’d like to take part here’s what you need to do:

  • Write a letter or card and address it to someone on our list.
  • Put it through the letterbox at St Aidan’s (Manor Lane, Sheffield S2 1UF) or add a stamp and post it

If you’d like to do this electronically:

Write your message and email it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

We’ll do the rest.

Thank you.


Nellie has lived on the Manor all her life and was married at St Swithun’s in the 1960’s, but is now widowed. She has spent a lifetime caring for others and was a member of our William Temple congregation before her health made it more difficult for her to get out and about. Despite this she is known for her cheeky smile and optimistic outlook!


Brian was born on the Manor in 1950 and has lived here ever since. After joining St Swithun’s he went onto be a Church Warden and also played a big part in the running of the Foodbank, as well as running the Lunch Club.
