Event from our Member St Wilfrid’s Hospice – Jail & Bail – Postponed

March 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

It’s back!

Jail & Bail is back for 2020! After such a successful first year, we are on the hunt for more community leaders and well-known local figures to spend time locked up (for entirely fictitious crimes!) down in the dark, damp basement of Eastbourne’s Historic Wish Tower.

The prisoner’s only hope of freedom lies in raising £1,000 in bail money with the help of their connections, friends, family and – most importantly – the public! All funds raised are in support of St Wilfrid’s vital work.

This nefarious crew will have from between now to the date of their court trial – which has been confirmed for Friday 20th March at the Wish Tower – to deliver the bond, or else face a lengthy prison stay!

How to bail out your chosen prisoner

Events such as these would not be possible without the support of our local community, and you can get involved by ‘bailing’ out your prisoner of choice.

Simply click on their headshot below and be taken to their JustGiving page. From here you’ll be able to find out about your prisoner’s dastardly crime, how much of their £1,000 bail they still need to raise and get them one step closer to release with a donation!

Stay up to date

Follow our prisoners’ respective journeys to freedom on FacebookTwitter and Instagram, where we’ll be posting using the #HospiceHooligans tag.

You can also look forward to live content on the day, where we will be broadcasting each of our prisoners behind bars, and hear them plead their innocence! Will you choose to release them?

Meet the prisoners

Thank you to…

A huge thank you to the Wish Tower for providing the perfect venue for our event, the community police officers who will be ‘arresting’ our fugitives, and to the wonderful volunteers who will be lending a hand on the day itself.
