About The Clink
‘An arresting lunch’ The Standard

The issue of reoffending has become one of the most pressing challenges facing society today. It is now recognised that the record levels of inmates in prison is not helping to reduce crime.

The sole aim of The Clink Charity is to reduce reoffending rates of ex-offenders by training and placing graduates, upon their release, into employment in the hospitality industry.

Please note: diners will be required to undertake security checks in advance of the lunch
