Jail or Bail for Rowcroft - Torbay's finest arrested

Jailbirds will stand trial in front of a judge, charged with unbelievable (and entirely fictitious misdemeanors), such as “impersonating an ELF”! “crimes against Lycra” and “Actual Bodily Charm”!

This year wrongdoers will be held under house arrest where they will have the opportunity to convince friends, family and colleagues to pay their bail. There will be a huge amount of PR around the event, and our digital media team will be busy updating all our social media accounts keeping us updated on our convicts antics.

All of the funds raised by our jail breakers will help Rowcroft Hospice support local people living with life-limiting illnesses to share precious time with family and friends. What a fabulous bunch of fugitives we have lined up!

Follow the links below to help them to escape house arrest by the 30th of September
