Fundraising Lunch at the Clink Restaurant in HMP Highdown

The first ever fundraising lunch for the AF Prison Project was hosted by Clinks restaurant in HMP High Down on the 19th October 2011.

The restaurant was filled to capacity with guests and sponsors and it was a great opportunity for supporters and Government Policy bodies to lean more about our work in prisons. The food was delicious and the staff and management of Clinks (all serving prisoners and ex-offenders) did a fantastic job in taking care of everyone that day. A special thanks to Chris Moore and Manager Dean for all their help in making it such a special day.

It was also such a joy to be able to invite the prison exhibition guides to join us for lunch, seated in each of the guest’s tables, they were able to talk to everyone about the exhibition at HMP High Down, and have the rare privilege of eating in the beautiful restaurant.
All in all, it was a great success and we would like to especially thanks Mr Kevin McGrath (Co-owner of Clink) who so generously sponsored the whole event and to Governor Peter Dawson for his continued unstinting support for the Anne Frank Trust UK.
