Guest Talk 2: Wed March 11th Debbie Whitworth, the CLINK prison charity. 7.30 for 8pm

Date: February 24, 2020

The Clink are an inspiring charity running Fine Dining restaurants in some of England’s most challenging prisons.

Debbie Whitworth is their Finance Director and believes passionately in the work they do and the opportunity for offenders to change their lives.

We are proud that alongside our partner, Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service, we continue to achieve extraordinary outcomes, meeting our key objective of reducing reoffending. We do this in an economical way, while delivering our core values of compassion, professionalism and integrity, in an environment that can sometimes seems bleak, with so many daily challenges.
The prisoners at each of The Clink training projects work up to 40-hours a week whilst working towards gaining their City & Guilds qualifications. Simulating a professional working environment, prisoners with six to eighteen months of their sentence left serve as volunteers for the programme, going through full-time training in order to reach the required level to succeed in their respective industry.                                         https://theclinkcharity.org/

Doors open at 7.30pm with refreshments. Talk begins at 8pm with time for Q&A and discussion.

There will be a retiring collection for the work of the CLINK

All welcome
