Alan's Zip Wire from Tyne Bridge
Having painted the Tyne Bridge many times from different angles, on 15th April I'm getting the opportunity to view it from a very unique perspective!
Raising money for
Junction 42 is an established charity which exists to see the lives of offenders and their communities visibly transformed.
It began in 2012 through their director Joanne O'Connor who had started the work in HMP/YOI Low Newton doing both chaplaincy and education provision, working for Youth for Christ in 2000. As the Entrepreneurial work grew and prison work became more adult focused, Junction 42 was born.
Susan & I have known Joanne and her husband John for almost 20 years and have we have closely followed and supported their prison work.
In the past couple of years Susan & I have delivered creative workshops teaching portraiture in Low Newton prison to the young women there.
Junction 42 also delivers art and music related projects and Entrepreneurial Training courses in prisons to equip individuals in custody to take ownership of their employment situation upon release.
The DWP refers offenders to Junction 42 to receive 1-2-1 Mentoring to help them develop an action plan to rebuild their lives and to engage in the community in a positive way. This can and does dramatically reduce the likelihood of re-offending.
Zip Wire off the Tyne Bridge!
To raise funds to support the work of Junction 42, members of the team are taking on the hair-raising challenge of the Tyne Bride zip wire!
Every penny donated will go towards the work of Junction 42 in prisons and in the community, where we see the lives of offenders and their communities visibly transformed on a daily basis.
