It is with pure delight with which I write this blog to announce that the i’s have been dotted and the t’s crossed regarding the organisation who will print the Pen and Corrections collection of haiku for which we have been raising funds through our Crowdfunder campaign https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/pen-and-corrections-haiku-by-serving-prisoners.
Before announcing who will print our book, I want to bring an article to your attention that was written by Jose Aguiar.
In the article, CITIZENSHIP AND SOCIAL ENTERPRISE IN PRISON, Jose explains that “A social enterprise is a not-for-profit organisation that has primarily social goals and which uses any surpluses to make a positive difference to the community: local, national or global.”
Ted, Ollie and I wanted to ensure we maximised our fantastic supporters’ donations, so that as much as possible from the money we raised is put back into supporting and helping others. Therefore, I am so delighted, proud and excited to announce that Mugshots Print from Northern Ireland will print our book. I’ve taken the following from their about us page at: https://www.mugshotsprintni.com/
I am sure you will agree we most definitely made the right choice.
