After raising almost £70k in 2021 for the charity Mental Health UK, prison, probation and youth justice staff across the UK have been at it again – this time raising over £60k for a whole range of good causes – and that’s only the ones we know about!
Among many, many, more:
- Frankland prison, with the support of the Prison Service Charity Fund and Potts Printing (UK), raised £27k to buy a new ambulance for the charity, Daft as a Brush, to transport cancer patients to and from hospital for their treatment.
- Staff at HMP Cardiff raised over £7k in the Welsh Five Peaks challenge for the charity Ty Hafan, which supports children with life-shortening conditions.
- And two members of staff at Holme House raised almost £4k in a skydive for the Melanoma-Me Foundation, which supports people affected by melanoma and skin cancer, and their families.
