Mental health charity Voices of Hope has launched its annual holiday campaign - Unite Against Loneliness - which involves sending thousands of cards to members of the older generation through Age Concern.

Many older people already feel isolated and lonely and the Covid-19 pandemic has only added to that, the charity says.

"The art of sending a card to someone at Christmas seems to have been lost over the years, we are encouraging people to revive the tradition of sending someone a nice card in the mail," Voices of Hope co-founder Genevieve Mora says.

"This could be a family member, neighbour, someone you know of or mail it to us, and we can make sure it gets out to someone in need of a bit of cheer. Hopefully this will help someone feel a bit less lonely this Christmas,."

Cards can be sent to: PO Box 90202, Victoria Street West, Auckland, 1142.

The deadline for sending cards is November 11. Find out more here.
