COST OF SENDING A PARCEL

 

Based on feedback from those that have already sent them, it is estimated that a parcel upto 2kg cost approximately £13-18 to post via the post office.

 

If your parcel exceeds 2kg, it is strongly reccommended that you split it into smaller 2kg parcels otherwise the postage cost will be excessive.

 

Signed for deliveries could potentially cause an issue with guards, so please just use the standard service.

Remember they are in prison and the guards will search these parcels, so please do not send playing cards (as they are considered gambling) or anything that could be considered a weapon, such as items containing glass.
