Sally MacEachern, who is a member of the Amnesty International Ely group, said: “Usually, Ely Cathedral generously hosts an annual Write for Rights card signing event with us, but the Covid-19 restrictions have prevented that.

“So we’re encouraging people to send cards, letters and sign online petitions instead – details can be found at www.amnesty.org.uk/write-rights-2020-get-started.”

Last year, more than six million messages of support were sent from around the world.

“The simple act of writing a letter can make a huge difference to a person’s life,” Sally added.
