Cronton Gala, Knowsley

We had an amazing day at Cronton gala on Saturday 15th June. The weather was a bit challenging and our handmade toy lucky owls kept taking flight. However, with the help of Tony from Cheshire Falconry and his daughter Macy (11) , we raised £112 towards the work we do at Hack Back. It was lovely to meet people and a great opportunity to talk about our work.

Owl meets Eagle

We had a fantastic meeting with MP Maria Eagle today. It was wonderful to discuss our work with this amazing lady who has done so much work in the past with issues around vulnerable women involved in the Criminal Justice System.

She kindly gave us much of her time and listened to the problems faced by small organisations like ours. She particularly enjoyed meeting Bolt.

Women’s Project Success

The Women’s Programme commissioned by Knowsley MBC and delivered in partnership with Knowsley Probation Trust, PSS and Innovate Volunteering has been a complete success whith the women all achieving positive outcomes.

The Female Offenders Operational Lead Manager for Knowsley has stated “It is clear since the conclusion of the programme that the women speak fondly of their time spent with Hack Back in increasing their confidence and developing their ideas, and all continue to make positive progress. I am aware that this increased confidence and positive focus for the future can be attributed to the input they had with the Hack Back programme”.
