Giving it the hard cell to raise charity cash
‘Inmates’ released once target has been reached
A TEAM of fundraising jailbirds found themselves locked in a police cell in Ruislip on Friday, October 6 until they had raised £500 for a nearby hospice.
The four inmates were thrown in the back of a police van at Michael Sobell Hospice in Northwood and were taken to Ruislip Police Station where they were held under lock and key.
Carol Weston, Karen Feakes, Angelo Pignone and David Brown were put away with nothing but their mobile phones to call friends and family until they had each raised £500 for the hospice.

This really is a fun challenge and we certainly couldn’t do it without the fantastic support of the team at Ruislip police station

The Jail and Bail event will be running again next year, which is Michael Sobell Hospice’s 40th birthday, and entries are already open.
