Sponsor a unique project
It gave me a feeling of giving a positive contribution that would be enjoyed by many people; a sense of leaving a heritage of my own in some small way.” Fine Cell Worker
One of the most effective ways that you can give to Fine Cell Work is to sponsor a unique project.
For our stitchers in prison, working on a special project for charity or to commemorate a personal event (such as a marriage or birth) or a public occasion (such as the Olympics), can make the most enormous difference to their skill and confidence levels.
It also connects them to the wider community. Being directly sponsored gives stitchers a sense of engagement with society that goes a long way to help break the cycle of crime once they are released.
Current special projects you can sponsor:
- £5 pays for embroidery silks or wool for a special project.
- £25 sponsors a prisoner to stitch a pennant.
- £80 or £120 sponsors a prisoner to stitch a special geometric cushion to your colour specifications that you get to keep.
- £20 - £100 helps get a prisoner-led project off the ground, like the quilt recently created at our Wandsworth workshop to benefit Help for Heroes.
- £500-£5,000 donations can kick start inspirational projects enabling prisoners to create expressive work.
For you, the sponsor, it means you get to choose exactly where your money is going.
