 Local charity supporting prisoners’ families holds Spring Fair to help raise funds

A local charity which supports families of prisoners is holding a Spring Fair on Saturday 19 March 2016, from 10am – 12.30pm at the Town Hall, Market Place, Durham City.

The fair will give local people the chance to find out more about Nepacs’ work in the north east and help raise funds to support their work with children and families.

Nepacs is a long standing charity which works across the north east region to help support a positive future for prisoners and their families. Staff and volunteers from Nepacs provide a number of services to support friends and families of prisoners, in seven prison and young offender establishments across the north east and within the community, including prison visitors’ centres, play areas, youth projects, family support work and within the Teesside and Durham courts.

There will be a range of stalls selling:

  • Cakes
  • Plants
  • Books and DVDs.

There will also be a raffle and tombola, giving those that attend a chance to win one of the many prizes that have been donated.

Everyone is welcome. Entrance is £1 and includes tea/coffee, biscuits or a hot cross bun!

All proceeds will go towards Nepacs work in helping families and friends of prisoners in the north east.
