Meg's story

For the last few months, I’ve been volunteering with a charity called Sing Inside. This FANTASTIC organisation delivers singing workshops inside prisons. Those close to me have heard me witter on about the justice system and all of its failings but this charity is readdressing the balance of negativity in these spaces. The fact that music making is the tool for this is a real bonus for someone who loves having a sing!

It is, by far, the most fulfilling work I have ever done. The residents are not defined by their number or crime - their name is reinstated and music accompanies this. Themed workshops provide a structure for the repertoire and classic numbers including ’Blue Moon’ and ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ have been sung by us all. I leave each session with a renewed sense of hope for humanity in this polarising climate we inhabit. In order for this work to continue, the expansion of the organisation is necessary. For this, money is needed so I’m very happy to run 13 miles to try and enable this to happen. I’m aiming for £300 as this covers the travel costs of one prison visit.

I hope you will support this worthy cause as a functioning and supportive judicial system is to the benefit of us all. 83,000 people are currently residing in a UK prison and I feel that this collective should not be sidelined. “A working criminal justice…is essential to peaceable democratic society’ (The Secret Barrister, 2018, p.13)
