An assortment of scoundrels were banged up behind bars at a Suffolk town hall until they could muster enough charity cash to fund their release.
The sinful seven included familiar faces from across the Woodbridge area, where Home-Start East Ipswich and Coastal staged its second ever Jail and Bail event, raising £5,042 towards its work supporting families in need across the district.
Each rogue was rounded up and carted away by local police specials, before meeting their fate at the Shire Hall, where BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Stephen Foster dealt out some swift justice for such misdemeanours as wearing odd socks in public and watering down the town’s beer supply.
Home-Start fundraising coordinator, Ella Heaney said: “Everyone enjoyed themselves and managed to raise, or even exceed their targets.
“The money will go directly to enabling us to support local families.”
