Books and games for Wandsworth prisoners: can you help?


Books and games for Wandsworth prisoners: can you help?
A  team of friends of Wandsworth Prison are creating activity packs for the prisoners (who are all on 23-hour lockdown); so far 800 have been assembled. These consist of jigsaws, board games (e.g. dominoes, chess, ludo), coloured pencils and paper and appropriate magazines including motoring magazines, History Today and colour supplements. They are also looking for books including airport style novels and foreign language books and dictionaries.Items can be left in two plastic crates outside the door to the Visitor Centre, 17, Heathfield Road, SW18 3HR, close to Magdalen Road.  The Visitor Centre is separate from the prison, on the left as you face the main prison entrance. It is closed on Sundays.

Or, if there is a substantial collection, please email events@wandsworthsociety.com and your email will be forwarded to arrange collection at a specified time from your front garden.
