“I am writing to thank you for the recent clothing grant awarded to me by BACO.

It is very easy for one’s identity to be lost or diminished in prison, especially for those of us who are serving long sentences.  Being able to wear smart, non-prison clothing, to one’s own taste and choosing is hugely important in off-setting this.  Personally, when I am freshly showered and I slip on my own smart clothing and shoes, my feel-good factor and self-esteem both thrive.

The work of BACO is fantastic in helping so many people to take an edge off prison life.  Your work and dedication is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.”
