Jail and Bail 

Jail and Bail is a hugely entertaining courtroom event which sees fundraisers arrested, charged with their crimes (entirely fictitious, of course) and then placed on trial. 

If our jailbirds are found guilty of their 'wicked and entirely fictional crimes', which they inevitably will, they will be taken into custody, photographed and banished to the cells. They will only be released if they can raise bail of £999 from their connections, including friends, family and colleagues. This fun courtroom drama will raise vital funds for Children's Hospice South West.

2016 Jail and BailPrevious events

Our previous Jail and Bail events have raised over a staggering £60,000 for Children's Hospice South West!

Take a look at how the previous sinners got on from our events across the South West region.
