Prison Week 13-19 October - Sixty-One Video
With funding from the Trusted Executive Charitable Foundation, Sixty-One has been able to produce a short video highlighting their work with people with criminal convictions. In it, ex-prisoners talk about their lives and Sixty-One staff talk about the difference you can make. Sixty-One hopes that your church will show this video as part of your Prison Week (13-19 October) reflections, or at another time if this is not convenient.
It's a great way of showing how giving a little time can make a huge difference.
Ways in which you can help the work of Sixty-One include:
Train to become a MentorMe mentor
Set up a Hub at your church providing a mid-week community space for ex-prisoners
Ask your church to pack bags of Christmas gifts that Sixty-One gives to prisoners in three local prisons
Donate to their work - working with prisoners is never popular
Pray for what Sixty-One does
