Jail & Bail 2022

Jail and Bail is back! Well-known local figures spend time locked up (for entirely fictitious crimes!) to raise money for hospice care.

What is Jail and Bail all about?

Jail and Bail is back for 2022! After such a successful first year, we are hunting 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 now until the 18th March 2022 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 Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, where we’ll be posting using the hashtag: #HospiceHooligans

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

Meet the prisoners

Do you know of someone who has committed a crime that needs to be locked up to help local hospice care? Or do you need to confess your own crime? Contact hannah.hildreth@stwhospice.org so that justice can be done 😉

Thank you for your support at this time
