Support Fine Cell Work at their Christmas Emporium, 10th November at 20th Century Theatre, 291 Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill, London W11
Fine Cell Work is a social enterprise that teaches needlework to prison inmates and sells their products. The earnings give them hope, skills and independence. Stitchers spend an average of twenty hours a week doing embroidery in their cells; it’s a way of life that enables them to serve their time with dignity and purpose. Fine Cell Work is done in 30 prisons and 80% of the stitchers are men. All the classes have waiting lists.
Fine Cell Work trains and pays inmates to do top quality embroidery and soft furnishings in prison, encouraging them to come out with new skills and hope for a better future. "Fine Cell Work gives these men dignity in work and through this, dignity in life. When a man gains self-respect he may start addressing his offending behaviour” Officer, HMP Wandsworth
