St Catherine's 'Jails' Scarborough Personalities

St Catherine's 'Jails' Scarborough Personalities

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 1:11pm 16th November 2017.

Scarborough personalities and business leaders are being ‘locked up’ in Scarborough’s old prison for the day to help raise some vital funds for Saint Catherine’s.

Throughout the day the inmates will use their contacts and public support in the hope that they will raise enough money to ‘BAIL’ them out! However, there may be some people who would prefer to keep these inmates behind bars! If this is the case, supporters can pay to ‘JAIL’ their chosen inmate and ensure they serve their full sentence.

Nicky Grunwell, Event Organiser, said:

‘‘This is the first time we have staged this fun event. We are really excited about how the day is going to pan out! Will everybody be bailed or will someone be left in at the end of the day? We are thrilled with our inmates and feel privileged that they have given up an entire day to help raise vital funds for patient care’’.
