Christmas can be an especially lonely time for the British prisoners we are supporting, who will be many miles away from their families during the festive period. Every year, our supporters help to alleviate this loneliness by sending Christmas cards to people who are imprisoned overseas. 

Our Christmas card scheme for 2023 is now closed, and will reopen in the autumn of 2024. If you would like to be the first to know when the scheme reopens, or would just like more information, email Meg at [email protected].

For now, we would like to say a sincere thank you to every person who has written and sent in cards this year. A person imprisoned in Japan wrote to us to say:

"Please thank the Prisoners Abroad supporters for the Christmas cards which they take the time to purchase, sign and send out to the many British prisoners in foreign prisons. Though it be a small token, it has very great value. Someone somewhere cares. May every nation have a Prisoners Abroad. You are all worth your weight in gold."
