On the 6th July we will celebrate the remarkable achievement of 100 ex-offenders in to sustainable employment! When we registered Tempus Novo as a charity in May 2014, and whilst still working as prison officers, we couldn’t have dreamed of the momentum or direction of travel it would take. So many fantastic people have joined forces with us to challenge what is a huge stigma in society, and the numbers continue to grow. I’d like to use this opportunity to thank each and every one of you, as this work cannot be done in isolation. People buy “why you do” not “what you do” and so I’ll take the level of support as a huge compliment. The 6th July is going to be very special and all the more so because Sir James our vice president is opening the doors of his beautiful Birstwith Hall Estate, to host the evening.
