The 16th of July was just another day that Prison Links CEO Ricky Dehaney collected food bags for his clients but this time he was joined by The Phoenix Newspaper boss Dr Marcia McLaughlin.

Each week at least 30 families and individuals benefit from the distribution and this has happened right from the beginning of the lockdown period. The project is supported by Birmingham’s Active Wellbeing society and especially for some of the more vulnerable recipients, the bags are a lifeline in a period where conventional shopping can not only be challenging but risky.

"We have no idea how long we can keep the supplies going but our trustees Bishop Mike Wilson and Bishop James Herbert are grateful to the Active Wellbeing Society for providing the food for our clients" said Dehaney.

Prison Link are sponsored by Tropical Sun who also support the food distribution project .
