‘The Shannon Trust & The Hope Trust’
~ Miller Caldwell ~
Author and Film Script Writer
This will be a highly unusual and entertaining talk to start the year.
Miller will reveal why he has been in many prisons and even how a murder influenced his first few days of life!
Who is Tom Shannon and why was the Shannon Trust begun? How did it spread like wildfire into every UK penal establishment? With an illustrated insight into the charity’s work in two prisons, it also gives the wider community comfort in knowing that this cost – free daily exercise creates literate prisoners on release.
The HOPE Trust provides prisoner visiting opportunities.
SASO members and non-members alike are welcome; we will be most pleased to see you. Formal notice in advance is not required and we will be happy to receive you at Police HQ.
