Here at Lichfield foodbank we’ve received an amazing donation of food. Its not the amount but the fact it has come from our local prison – HMP Young Offenders Institution at Swinfen Hall. This was an idea from the prisoners themselves, recognising that there are others worse off than them. They get paid a small amount for the work they do and they have saved that up – forgoing treats for themselves – and asked the chaplain to buy food for the community. We think it is a fantastic thing to do and we are very grateful for what they have done. We hope to visit and thank them in person. This is an amazing example of concern and self-sacrifice that society probably wouldn’t expect from these young men.
