Jail and Bail will see a number of community leaders and well-known figures spending time behind bars (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 the 20th March at the Wish Tower - to deliver the bond, or else face a lengthy prison stay!

Tim Morgan, a Partner with Barwells Solicitors in Eastbourne with a previously unblemished record is charged with keeping and using an unlawful still. Clear evidence of his most heinous crime is the extraordinary long hours which Tim spends in the Office, the sight of him carrying sacks of barley into the Hyde Gardens premises, the clouds of steam and strong smell of alcohol which emerge at regular intervals from the basement room in which he carries out his illicit activities and the bottles of hooch which he is seen to be touting around the town among the less discerning members of the drinking classes!

It is such a shame that Tim's 40-year career in the Law may be besmirched by such criminal activities and we can only hope that his friends and colleagues will rally round to raise the bail money of at least £1,000 required to secure his release from Detention at Her Majesty's Pleasure!

Please dig deep and donate towards Tim’s £1,000 bail bond - all funds raised from will go towards supporting St Wilfrid’s vital work in the local community.
