All Friends of Erlestoke Prison programmes within the prison and our Transport Scheme stopped as from mid-March 2020. We await further guidance from HMPPS as to when they can recommence.
Thank you to all who bid in our Christmas Auction and congratulations to those who were the highest bidders. The Auction raised just over £2,500 and will contribute to the continuation of our programmes currently running in the prison.
Thank you to the array of leading and local artists, writers, actors and musicians who created over 300 unique artworks on postcards. Thank you also to all of you who purchased a voucher to win a postcard.
The random allocation of postcard vouchers to postcard artworks took place on the 28 October and the postcards have been posted out to their new owners. We hope that you are pleased with the postcard that you received!
This was a joint initiative with Salisbury Museum and raised over £14,000 to be shared between the Friends and the Museum. A big thank you to everyone who supported this initiative. We couldn't have done it without you!
