In March I wrote about the British government’s crackdown on family members sending books to prisoners, and the petition you could sign asking the government to think again. Not much seems to have happened since then. However, I thought some of you might be interested to know of Haven Distribution, a charitable organisation which sends educational books to British prisons. There are several ways you can support them, including by donating direct or by clicking through the link on their 'Donating' page to give 5 per cent of the cover price of anything you purchase from Amazon.
I haven’t yet donated to either of these schemes, so can tell you no more than this.
