fine cell workFine Cell Work - are looking for Volunteers

The Embroiderers' Guild has been contacted by Rosie Greenfield of Fine Cell Work - Fine Cell Work is a charity which makes beautiful handmade products in British prisons. Teaching prisoners high-quality needlework boosts their self-worth, instils self-discipline, fosters hope and encourages them to lead independent, crime-free lives.

They are currently looking for new volunteers to teach stitching in prison groups in the Buckinghamshire, Leicester, Hertfordshire and Staffordshire areas. Their volunteers are usually highly skilled embroiderers or needlepointers and Fine Cell Work hope that this opportunity might appeal to some of our members.

If you are interested please contact Rosie Greenfield by email - rgreenfield@finecellwork.co.uk
