This special award recognises individuals who have promoted and worked with Surrey produce for a number of year – it’s the only award chosen purely by the judges

And the winners is…

The Clink Charity

Chairman of the judges Matthew Williams says:

“Recently recognised internationally by his nomination for the Basque Culinary World Prize, The Clink’s founder Al Crisci originally came up with his prison restaurant idea at HMP High Down, between Sutton and Banstead. First opened in 2009, it set out to train prisoners and, in theory, reduce reoffending rates. It’s fair to say, the scheme has gone from strength-to-strength and its positive impact has resulted in further successful restaurants opening across the country. At HMP Send, meanwhile, you’ll find female prisoners making use of the polytunnels and allotments to grow fresh fruit and veg – a fairly recent addition to The Clink Charity, with a view to growing fresh produce for the restaurants. This is a truly inspirational scheme, which has its roots firmly in Surrey and its impact further afield cannot be underestimated. A visit to the excellent restaurant at HMP High Down comes highly recommended, too. You’ll be surprised.”
