In the ‘lock-up’ for good cause
Time 4 Kids raises funds for PCYC
UNPREDICTABLE weather and plenty of events on around town left the Whitsunday PCYC gang unsure on how this year’s Time 4 Kids would pan out.
But the day triumphed, raising more than $9000 towards upgrading the club’s equipment.
Twelve locals donned the stripes and donated their time behind bars on Saturday to raise money for the quality cause.
One-by-one the convicts were marched from the paddy wagon to the jail cell, where they were left to their own devices – at least until their bail money was paid.
Whitsunday PCYC branch manager Sergeant John Dickinson said all in all, it was a successful day.
“It was a bit down on what we raised in the past (but) for the current climate, it was a good effort by all detainees to raise that amount,” he said.
Next up is the Triple 000 Emergency Services Ball on July 4 at the PCYC club in Jubilee Pocket.
