Fine Cell Work – Christmas event invitation

I love this piece of work by The Partners for prison charity Fine Cell Work.  Ok, so I may be biased as it is my wife’s work, but I think it’s awesome.  Clare and I went to their fund raising effort at the V&A last night.  We were surrounded by the Old Money of Kensington brigade of fundraisers, with Chief Inspector of Prisons, Sir David Ramsbottom leading the charge.  

For those unaware of Fine Cell Work, it’s a charity which operates in UK prisons, teaching prisoners needlework skills. As surprising as it seems, hundreds of inmates fill their long prison hours sewing cushionsand quilts, creating a sense of pride and community. This assists them with rehabilitation as they have an activity to focus on, which also earns them money to spend on family or to help them get started on a new life when their sentence finishes.
