The Princess presented 10 Awards and 20 Commendations to a total of 30 staff members and volunteers from prison and community justice settings throughout the UK, and among the 200 guests from across the criminal justice sector were: Secretary of State for Justice, David Gauke; Minister for Prisons and Probation, Rory Stewart; Chief Executive of HMPPS, Michael Spurr; Head of the Scottish Prison Service, Colin McConnell; and the Head of the Youth Justice Board, Colin Allars.
This year’s Princess Royal’s Prize for Outstanding Achievement (the highest Award) went to Senior Governor, David Savage, for the outstanding levels of passion, dedication and courage he has brought to his work at HMP Maghaberry on behalf of both the Northern Ireland Prison Service and the wider community. His impact on the prison has been genuinely transformational.
