Woodbridge: It’s a dare, cop! Mandy’s crazy caper lands her behind bars

A ‘felonious’ fundraiser surrendered her freedom for one of her latest charity stunts.
Mandy Hearle, who has taken on a sponsored dare every day since the beginning of the year, was put behind bars at the Shire Hall in Woodbridge until she raised ‘bail’ for her release.
Mandy was spotted skulking around town before being locked up as part of her Mission Possible 2014 campaign to raise cash for Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF), in memory of local teenager Poppy Harvey.
Poppy, the eldest daughter of Marcia and Steve Harvey, was 19 when she suffered a fatal allergic reaction to cake containing traces of peanut in June 2010. The medical student, whose favourite colour was pink, wanted to be a doctor with MSF.
As well as doing time, Mandy recently spent a night in Buttrum’s Mill, leapt into Deben pool in a selection of animal print onesies, dressed up as a cheeky clown to stir up scares and even tried galloping acrobatics at Valley Farm Equestrian Leisure.

Along the way, she has been generously offered services and supplies free of charge, including materials for making a sculpture in recognition of World Humanity Day from Kim Tester of Metalfix. The Woodbridge Shufflers invited her to join their River Run, while artist Mark Scott-Wood included her into his installation at the library.
James Neal from Neals Auctioneers and Estate Agents will be running an auction in November and any contributions of items or pledges worth £20 or more are welcomed.

Mandy said that recent world events have heightened her desire to raise as much as possible in the next three months. She said: “With the current Ebola outbreak running out of control and the crisis in Gaza – to mention two – they really do need our support more than ever.”
