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

We would like to say a sincere thank you to every person who wrote and sent in cards last year: your compassion meant that every prisoner we were supporting received at least one card, bringing hope at the end of a particularly difficult year. With your help, 1,908 cards were sent to prisoners overseas in 2020's Christmas Card Scheme. Each card will have helped to alleviate the isolation felt by British Prisoners abroad at an incredibly difficult time.

Prisoners Abroad's Christmas Card Scheme will reopen in the Autumn of 2021. If you would like to be the first to know when the scheme reopens, or would just like more information, email Stephen at [email protected]

I would like to thank the people who have taken the time to send me Christmas greetings cards. It means a great deal, as you are probably aware. It brightens up the darkest period of incarceration, when it is made only too clear how we have the misfortune to be away from our loved ones. Thank you once again.
