When I first suggested the idea everyone looked at me like I was absolutely crazy, but the atmosphere was brilliant. Despite some hairy moments on the way up, everyone loved the experience, and we got a lot of support by livestreaming it on the way.

From hosting a cake bake to running in London’s Royal Parks, there are countless ways you can fundraise for PET.

Every penny you raise can offer hope and purpose to people in prison, transforming not only their lives, but the futures of their families and communities too.

Grab a place at a running event and raise money for people in prison who want to use their time to study.

Which course?

Which course?

“If I could choose any distance course I would do horticulture as I’m obsessed with pot plants. I probably shouldn’t grow any more though, I already have 20 (and counting) in my flat!”
