It's back!

Jail & Bail: The Great Escape

Jail & Bail is back – with a twist! We’re thrilled to announce that the event will be going ahead on the new date of 9th October 2020 – and this time, our Prisoners will be competing against each other to pull of their own Great Escape!

Our wonderful prisoners were all set to be locked up in March this year, and we were really disappointed to have to postpone due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Jail & Bail: The Great Escape is a new, socially distanced twist on the original event- with our dastardly prisoners locked up in The Wish Tower two at a time. Once imprisoned, they will have 30 minutes to solve the St Wilfrid’s Riddle – and whoever cracks it first will win their freedom!

We will be announcing the Prisoner Pairs in the next week or so, so keep an eye out on social media and our website for more details.

As Autumn sets in, The Wish Tower will be damper and chillier than ever, so if you’d like to sponsor our fantastic Prisoners you can do so below by clicking on their JustGiving links. With many of our Spring and Summer fundraising events cancelled, all of the money raised by events like this will go a long way to supporting the Hospice, and helping us to continue our vital work in the local community.

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 Facebook, Twitter 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.
