Prisoners Literature Project

PLP’s regular Sunday volunteering hours now 2pm to 6pm!

November 2017  |  Published in Announcements, Latest News

Apologies for the back and forth on this, but the Prisoners Literature Project’s open Sunday volunteering hours are now 2pm to 6pm, starting next Sunday (December 3rd, 2017!) going forwards.

We’ve adjusted all of the dates on our websites and social media going forwards – or are about to do so. (Why the change? We ran into a conflict with our colleagues at Grassroots House on timing.)

Reminder – you can come for as much or as little of a session as you’d like, but try to come at the start of the session if you’re new, so we can explain what to do at the same time we explain it to others.
