Elizabeth Fry was a humanitarian who fought to improve conditions in prisons at a time when they were so poor that many people died what while serving their sentence.
In addition, she set up night shelters for the homeless and training schools for nurses which helped to inspire the likes of Florence Nightingale. Individual liberty is an important aspect of our academy and is the protection of your own rights and the rights of those around you. It is having the freedom to do something and being allowed to decide for yourself what actions to take or not take. Having the freedom to do something doesn’t mean that it is the right thing to do. Individual liberty is about everyone having the freedom to make their own choices.

Total Money Raised
Donations are vital to the ongoing work of the butterfly hospice.
The butterfly Hospice costs £600,000 a year to run so every pound raised for them really counts. Last year they supported over 160 families through their difficult time.
The Butterfly Hospice links perfectly with Fry House’s core value of Individual Liberty as it allows patients to make decisions about their care and how the spend their remaining lives. It gives them the opportunity to live a dignified and fulfilled existence which they can enjoy with family and friends within the hospice. The individual liberty of patients is key to the hospice which provides a vital service in our community.
How our fundraising can help; £7 provides quality food for one patient for a day. £100 pays for housekeeping for a day, £500 pays for gardening equipment to maintain the hospice grounds over the course of a year. Last year’s Bag pack raised over £600 for Butterfly hospice and the total raised by Fry House for The Butterfly Hospice will hopefully continue to grow in the future.
