After a rather isolating year, we invite people to connect through our Pen Pal scheme, which matches primary school children with people aged 60+.
OV Pen Pals registration is now open for primary schools, community groups for people aged 60+ and individuals aged 60+ who would like to connect with each other through letters, emails and online zoom calls.
Once matched, pen pals will be set creative challenges every two weeks to complete together as they get to know each other. All communication will be via participating schools.
