Residents of Llandaff’s Pritchard Court were recently among the 46 guests invited to the presidential lunch of Cardiff and District Soroptimists International at the Clink Restaurant at Cardiff Prison.
President Jane Percy thanked members for their support during the year and presented certificates of appreciation.
Pritchard Court resident Rita Gwyn Jones told Living Magazines:
“What a superb lunch it was, in sumptuous surroundings and with excellent service!”
The charity helps suitable offenders break the cycle of crime by nurturing self-belief, workplace skills and offering nationally-recognised qualifications.
With a period of mentoring, some will find work at prestigious hotels or restaurants and one individual has recently been accepted at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff.
Hopefully, the reoffending rate will again be down to a mere 12.5%.
