Reception at the Old Bailey for the Elizabeth Fry Charity
On Wednesday 24th May 2017, my fellow Sheriff (William Russell) and I welcomed guests to the Grand Hall of the Old Bailey for a reception in aid of the Elizabeth Fry Charity and to celebrate 200 years since her pivotal involvement in prison reform, especially for women prisoners.
All donations, raffle funds and old Elizabeth Fry £5 banknotes (as they are being withdrawn) will go to the Sheriffs' and Recorder's Fund and to the Elizabeth Fry Charity.
