DO YOU fancy spending a evening in a prison cell for a good cause?

Tenovus Cancer Care has announced it is to hold its first sponsored North Wales 'Prison Lock Up' to help raise funds for cancer patients and their families.

The event will take place at Mold Police Station on March 9.

A spokesman for the charity said: "Are you brave enough to be one of our ‘prisoners’ who will have their fingers prints and mug shots taken, be given prison clothing to wear and have all home comforts taken from them, including their mobile phones?

"We're looking for courageous individuals to be locked up in cold, dark prison cell from 5pm until midnight.

"They will be fed prison microwaved food, be put through their paces through vigorous exercise in the dingy yard and will be questioned by the team at the station for “made-up” charges, although there may be some very small privileges for good behaviour.

"It will be up to the individuals to entertain themselves until their release, however all participants will be moved around the cells so will get to meet the other prisoners throughout the evening.

"We ask you to aim to raise £300 sponsorship for this challenge, however, sign up as a team of three and raise £750.

"The lock up with last from 5pm until midnight, however, prisoners may be released early for hitting fundraising target and good behaviour.

"If you feel fearless enough to take on this challenge, let us know below and one of our fundraising team will be in touch."
