Donate to our Appeal - Keep the Sewing Going



To donate, enter the amount you want to donate in the quantity box, leaving out punctuation ( i.e. no £ sign or commas.) 

Then click "add to cart" and check out. (see below for any questions.)

    Your donation will contribute to our emergency appeal. We are aiming to raise £75,000 by 30th November so we can - in the words of one stitcher - 'Keep the Sewing Going'.

    So far, we have raised £60,715

    How will your donation help?

    • £10,000 provides 50 prisoners with accredited training and work experience in our prison workshops.
    • £5,000 allows us to regrow a needlework training class in prison to full capacity.
    • £1,000 provides materials and training manuals to support 20 beginner stitchers in their prison cells.
    • £500 will support a prisoner for one year, providing all the stitching materials, training manuals, and volunteer expenses for them to be a Fine Cell Worker.
    • £250 contributes towards the cost of a sewing machine in one of our prison workshops.
    • £100 covers the cost of materials, enrolment, and certificates for a Fine Cell Work stitcher to take up accredited training.
    • £50 supports a prisoner training to be a volunteer ‘class coordinator’, to teach and mentor other prisoners.

    Or choose your own amount. Every donation matters! 

    Experiencing any difficulties?  

    • Why should I enter a quantity, not the amount I’d like to donate?  To make sure 100% of your donation goes directly to Fine Cell Work, we are using the existing product functionality of our website. This means the Appeal effectively had to become a ‘product’. 
    • I’d like to donate £1,000, what quantity should I enter? Enter 1000 (without punctuation) and you will donate £1000.
    • Why is there £1 under the title? Again this is related to the existing product functionality - £1 is the price of one quantity of "the product"
    • Why is there a 'Buy with Google' button? As we are using the existing product functionality of our website it gives very few options to reformat this important donations page. Please ignore this button. 
    • I’m keen to donate, but are still experiencing difficulties, can you help?  Contact Georgie ( who will help.

    Thank you for your invaluable support.
