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.  

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, 1,666 cards were sent to prisoners overseas in 2021'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 2022. 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].

Thank you for thinking and caring about me, it's people like you that keep our spirits high, knowing that someone is thinking about us at this time.
