Zip Wire Challenge for Nepacs
Myself Sandi Long, Ruth Bibbings, Sarah Stokes, Mary Barnard, Sam Clark and Selina Royal from Holme House Prison and Visitors Centre will be facing our fears and flying through the air on the Velocity 2 Zip Wire in Wales reaching speeds of 125mph to raise money for Nepacs.
We know that families experience many difficulties when a loved one goes to prison. Even though family members may retain their freedom, a prison sentence can impact on their health, well being, housing, finances, education and future opportunities. Nepacs is there to help families, and especially children, through this difficult time.
When families come to visit their loved ones in prison for the first time, they find it a daunting experience and often feel uncomfortable fearing the unknown. Therefore we have decided to challenge ourselves and step out of our comfort zone in order to understand how visitors may feel when they face this on a daily basis.
We may be crazy but we will do anything for a great cause.
Charity Velocity 2 Zip Wire
We are going to take on the Velocity 2 Zip Wire Challenge in Wales - which is the longest zip wire in Europe and the fastest in the world reaching speeds of a 125mph - on 21 May 2018 to help raise funds for Nepacs.
Nepacs and its staff/volunteers do a fantastic job in the north east of England to support prisoners and their families. We do this through a range of support services at court, prison and in the community.
The money we raise from our challenge will enable Nepacs to provide more grants to our service users, more special family visits and more opportunities for families to strengthen their relationships and move forward in a positive way.
Please show your support and sponsor us every donation will be greatly appreciated.
