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!

Julie Eltham is a Regional Director for the Athena Network, a women’s only networking group in the South East of England. At each meeting, participants have a timed minute to present their business, and Julie stands accused of consistently running over her minute! An anonymous source told us ‘We had noticed Julie’s ‘minutes’ were getting longer and longer – but we all run over now and then. However, last month she spoke for a full FIVE minutes, and we knew we had to take action!’

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