Congratulations to Ann Glen-Esk on her award of a British Empire Medal in recognition of her prison and community work.
From the Evening Times:
A spokeswoman for The Scottish Prison Service said:
“Ann has been involved with HMP Low Moss since its opening back in 2012 and it is those in our care, as well as their families, who benefit from her hard work and long-standing dedication which this award recognises.”
The British Empire Medal in my name represents the willingness of a host of folk to come together, to have fun and at the same time do a wee bit of good – often difficult to quantify, but reassurance comes in spades from the most unlikely sources. Victims of crime deserve justice, perpetrators of crime deserve punishment from courts. Rehabilitation, support for families in prisons can be aided by a friendly smile, chat and a willingness of us all to notice and respect our neighbours in whatever context.
Thanks to Scottish Episcopal Church, Mother’s Union and the amazing Low Moss Volunteer Group and staff of HMP Low Moss.
