Prisoners and staff pick litter and raise funds for charity

Staff and prisoners from Isle of Man Prison walked the Millennium Way to help raise money for Manx Cancer Help.

As well as raising funds for charity, the walkers performed an important environmental role by picking up litter left behind during the Lisa Lowe Memorial Walk, which was held the previous day.

Setting off at 8am, one group tackled the 26-mile route from Sky Hill in Ramsey to Castletown, while a second group completed the shorter 11-mile route from Crosby.

Four trusted prisoners joined staff members Mike Pacey, Andy Morrison, Leroy Bonnick, Martin Phillips, Tara Scott and June Melvin on the walk, with support provided by Ant Rogan and Armando Armillei. The prison staff gave up their free time to take part.

A cheque presentation will follow once all the money has been collected.

Staff at the prison are long-standing supporters of Isle of Man charities and took part in the first Lisa Lowe Walk in 1997.
