Esteemed Actor Simon Callow CBE spoke on Radio 4 about Prisoners Abroad to raise funds for British people imprisoned abroad, raising awareness of the terrifying conditions and isolation they face locked up far away from family and friends.

Missed it? You can still read Jon’s story of how he survived a Thai jail to return home and rebuild his life.

Thank you to everybody who has already donated. An anonymous family trust has agreed to match fund everything raised from this appeal so any gift will have double the impact.

All around the world we know there are British people in foreign jails; they are terrified, lost, bewildered and ill..thank God there is an organisation that can help and that organisation is Prisoners Abroad.

If you can possibly find some way of contributing to give prisoners back their sense of self respect, their sense of dignity, their sense of being human will be doing a very fine thing.
