The Building Stronger Families Program is run at the Loddon Prison and provides an opportunity for prisoners who are fathers to spend time with their children and maintain their family relationships. At the end of each year, a Christmas party is held for the participants of this program and their families. We give small gifts to all the children. Are you able to donate a present this year?
