During Lent, we collected toiletries for people being released from HMP Durham and Low Newton. The parishes of the Finchale Partnership also contributed to the collections and your generosity really is very gratefully received. We’ve received a letter from nepacs, which says:
To: The Catholic Churches of The Finchale Partnership
A huge thank you one again for all the contributions we have received for HMP Durham and HMP Low Newton.
The number of men and women released from custody without any possessions is ever increasing therefore the toiletries we can provide are so appreciated by them, it is so satisfying to see their reactions when given a pack of items, it is quite humbling.
Your continued support has been amazing and as a charity we strive to improve the transition for ex-offenders from prison life to being released.
