Star praise for Erlestoke prison project

Written by Admin on May 04 2013


TV star Andrew Lincoln praised the work of Barnardo’s visitor centre at HMP Erlestoke, near Westbury, in a recent visit as the charity’s ambassador.

The visitor centre aims to reduce the impact of the ‘hidden sentence’ suffered by children when their father is imprisoned.

It also aims to improve the rehabilitation of offenders by maintaining links with their families.

Mr Lincoln, who stars in zombie series The Walking Dead, said: “This project benefits society as well as offenders, because they are far less likely to reoffend if they’re released to a family who still love them.”

Zombie drama star shows support for Calne children’s centre

Television star Andrew Lincoln joined families at the Barnardo’s Sure Start Children’s Centre in Calne to celebrate its fifth anniversary and cut a cake for excited children to share.

The actor, whose most recent television role is police officer Rick Grimes in zombie apocalypse The Walking Dead, and who also starred in This Life and Teachers, has been an ambassador for Barnardo’s since 2007.

Since he began supporting Barnardo’s he has visited several different projects across the UK, but this is his first visit to a children’s home.

Mr Lincoln, who lives in North Wiltshire, has two young children of his own named Matilda and Arthur.

He said he was inspired to become an ambassador after his daughter’s birth and felt an affinity with the parents at the children’s centre.

He said: “A few months before Matilda was born a friend of mine organised an exhibition and I realised Barnardo’s wasn’t just a fostering and adoption charity, it did so much more, and I was really interested.

“When you’re a parent you improve your life for the life of your child.

“I believe, whatever their background, children deserve the best chance to fulfil their potential.”
