Back in the summer we asked for your help in identifying the county’s ‘most wanted’; the bosses, colleagues and local figures you thought should be locked-up in a fun fundraising challenge for our care.
At 10am this Saturday 26th September 2020, Philip Serrell, John Bawden, Bill Cave, Chris Goodall and John Goodall will all be locked up in their spare rooms, potting sheds and even a shepherd’s hut tasked with fundraising for their freedom.
It’s not quite the cells we had planned for them but, in these socially distant times, their families assure us they’re going nowhere on Saturday until they’ve raised their bail money!
Look out for our posts this weekend and please give generously if you can. Every penny raised will help us be there for patients and their families when they’re most in need.
We must also thank our sixth ‘criminal’, Nick Baxter, who has already completed his jail time for St Richard’s and raised an incredible £960 to gain freedom!
