Prisoners help the homeless

Inmates at the prison have been contributing to the Island's new homeless shelter in Douglas.

Kingswood House, operated by the local charity Kemmyrk, officially opened its doors last month and provides overnight accommodation for those in need.

Prisoners have supported the organisation's fundraising efforts by donating art and craftwork items for sale to members of the public.

A total of £110 was raised to go towards the shelter's running costs.
