Butler Trust on the BBC!

Last night’s BBC One Show included a feature on Butler Trust Princess Royal’s Prize winner, Officer Bernadette Hare. The show kicked off with a 5 minute video from HMP Bullingdon about Bernie and the work for which she won her Award, and she received warm applause from the studio audience afterwards.

Commenting on the piece, our Director, Simon Shepherd, said: “While it would have been good to hear from some prisoners talking about the difference staff can make, it was great to see an officer being portrayed in a positive light for a change. This shows that there is an appetite for good news stories out there, and we hope there’ll be plenty more where that came from about the many hidden heroes working in our prisons, probation and youth justice services”.

If you missed the show you can watch the video on BBC iPlayer (it starts about 5 minutes in). And you can read more about Bernie and her fellow Butler Trust winners on the “our winners” page.
