HUMAN rights charity Amnesty International is asking Huddersfield people to join its Greetings Card Campaign.

The charity has drawn up a booklet featuring 25 people around the world who have been imprisoned, sentenced to death or threatened because of their work promoting human rights.

The Greetings Card Campaign asks people to send a Message of Hope in a card to any one of the 25.

The campaign runs until January 31.

People can pick up a booklet from the Adult Education Centre on Huddersfield Road in Holmfirth.

Cards, envelopes and address labels will also be provided at the centre.

Angela Evans, who is organising the appeal in Holmfirth, said: "We can all make a real difference to protect people across the world wherever justice, fairness, freedom and truth are denied."

Amnesty International believes that, as well giving hope to people under threat the cards can make an impression on police, prison staff or political groups.

This can help ensure that people receive better food, living conditions and medical treatment.
