Jodi’s Lovely Letters Premieres Mon 24 Jul on BBC One

Published

on

One off documentary Jodi’s Lovely Letters, which airs on Monday 24 July at 7.30pm on BBC One, follows Jodi as she writes letters to strangers from all over the world, and also prepares to curate her first ever exhibition, based on her work. But life isn’t easy for the 28 year-old, who suffers with depression, anxiety and ME.

Jodi Bickley from Birmingham, started writing letters when she was just five years old. She was encouraged to write a letter to her grandmother who had just passed away – it was a letter to an angel.

From then on Jodi began to write letters and notes to strangers. She would leave them on busy Birmingham buses, in coffee shops, shopping centres – anywhere where they could be found and potentially brighten up someone’s day.

But after being bed-bound for a year and half from encephalitis, and severely suffering with her ME, it all got too much – and she prepared to kill herself. But luckily an app which she’d downloaded to cheer herself up on bad days pinged her back to life, making her laugh – something she hadn’t done in a very long time. If something so small and uplifting could change her mood dramatically maybe she could do the same for others. And so Jodi decided to set up her website to help people who were feeling just like her.

Jodi then started her website, One Million Lovely Letters, to help people in need of support just like her. Anyone wanting a letter can request one via email. She tells Aled Jones, who presents the programme and met her in her home, that her aim is to write to one million people, and help them in any way she can with her kind and uplifting words.

Since starting the project in 2013 Jodi has written more than 4,000 letters to people all over the world and currently has a further 8,000 requests in her inbox.

Jodi’s Lovely Letters airs on Monday 24 July 2017 from 7.30pm-8.00pm on BBC One.
