Anne Frank Exhibition at HMP Werrington 20th June - 1st July

The Anne Frank Prison Project returned to Werrington for the 3rd year in succession!

Great help from all departments at Werrington and great enthusiasm. For the first time the exhibition was accompanied by the ‘Anne Frank & Family Photo exhibition which was exhibited in the Visitor’s centre. Leah Thorne remarked what a great Creative Writing session she had done in Werrington- which is great praise!

Mr Steve Mendelssohn was the Guest Speaker and had very much enjoyed his visit. Mrs Sylvia Lancaster, who is the mother of murdered teenager Sophie Lancaster, came along to talk about the impact her daughter’s death had on her and her family. Both these talks were extremely powerful and well received by the staff and young people at the prison. The event was rounded off with performances from ‘Music in Prisons’. Extremely memorable!
