The Sir Harold Hood Memorial Lecture is held most years by Pact as an opportunity to celebrate the life and memory of a great friend and champion, the late Sir Harold Hood. The lecture seeks to contribute to public knowledge and understanding of how we can make prisons places in which individuals can achieve personal change and growth, and leave to live good lives, in stable and healthy relationships with family and the wider community.

This year, we suggest making a donation of £25 to help us cover the cost of the event and continue supporting prisoners and their families across England and Wales. Of course, you are welcome to choose as little - or as much - as you are comfortable giving.
