Charity event to support leukaemia

RAISING money for charity will take on an arresting look tomorrow when business and community leaders will be locked up at the Hinkler Central Shopping Centre.

The Charity Arrest Day is in aid of Wide Bay Australia Bundy Thunder entrant Alicia Otto, who is raising money for the Leukaemia Foundation.

Ms Otto said it was a wonderful way for people to raise money for the cause.

“We have had some great enthusiasm from the proposed ‘prisoners' and they have all been very good sports raising their bail money,” Ms Otto said.

The fun will start at 10.30am tomorrow with participants having to raise $500 “bail” money to be released from jail.

A “judge” and other officials will be looking after proceedings, and the public are invited to go along and support their jailbirds and donate to the cause.

Everyone is invited to join in the fun from 10.30am until about 1pm tomorrow at Hinkler Central – just look for the jail cell near The Reject Shop.
