Could you Jail and Bail for Age UK Blackburn with Darwen?

Blackburn BID Member Age UK Blackburn with Darwen needs your help with an exciting and fun fundraising initiative!

In partnership with Lancashire Police they are hosting a Jail and Bail event on Wednesday 22nd March at Blackburn town Centre police station.

They are looking for people to put themselves forward to be ‘jailed’ and held in the police station on the morning of the event – 9.30am to 12noon.  Jailees will be handcuffed and ‘arrested’ for an offence and held in the police station until they raise a minimum of £250 in bail monies (for Age UK) to secure their release.

Age UK will set up Just Giving pages for all jailees and update the page on the day with their jailed photos so they can share and raise sponsorship. It is a great networking opportunity and great fun for a worthy cause!  I’m attaching photos of when Ian Brown, Chair of The Hive Business Network took part in the event.

If you are interested in putting yourself forward to be ‘jailed’, have fun and raise money, please contact Elaine Jennings, Head of Business Development, 01254 266620 or
