A Friend of the Prison Reform Trust, Ben Owen, organized and took part in a London Prison Ride on 23rd June – a 75 mile bike ride around all the London prisons, consisting of 28 cyclists, 17 London boroughs, 1 Woolwich ferry, 3 cafe stops, 1 canal, 1 greenway, and 0 punctures! The ride took 11 hours in total and passed all of the prisons ending at Latchmere House. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Ben and all the cyclists who took part on Sunday for their commitment to prison reform and for raising sponsorship for the Prison Reform Trust. Please consider supporting Ben and friends and showing your support for prison reform by sponsoring him here

The Prison Reform Trust needs and values support from members of the public who share our aims of achieving a just, humane and effective prison system in the UK.  We do not accept government funding and rely entirely on voluntary donations. 

But public support is about more than just money.  Our increasing numbers of Friends, e-newsletter subscribers and followers on Twitter demonstrate the extent of support across the UK for prison reform, and help us make our case to those in power. 

There are a number of ways in which you can add your support, keep in touch and get involved.
