Courtney's arresting moments

CRIMES of goodwill have been committed and 13 upstanding Bundy citizens will pay the price.

Saturday will see Wide Bay Miss Bundy Thunder entrant Courtney Dingle lock up several well-known faces all in the name of charity.

The prisoners will be thrown in the slammer while they raise $1000 in bail money for the Leukaemia Foundation.

Miss Dingle is looking forward to Saturday and has enjoyed being an entrant in the competition.

“I wanted to get involved to raise money for charity, the Leukaemia Foundation is really good at giving back to the people who need it,” she said.

“The competition has helped me with talking to people, I was never very outgoing but now I am much better.”

The 17-year-old wants to raise as much as she can for the charity.

“I'm not in it to win it, I just want to help out,” she said.

Deputy Mayor Tony Ricciardi will be one of the jailbirds on Saturday and is happy to help out.

“It is all for a good cause, I just hope I get my bail money,” Cr Ricciardi said.

The charity lock-up will be held at Hinkler Central Shopping Centre from 10.30am until 1.15pm.

A judge and other officials will be on hand to supervise the prisoners and decide their fate.

Miss Bundy Thunder will be announced on October 31 at the pre-race party at Bundaberg Civic Centre.

Tickets are available for $70 which includes entry, a two-course meal, charity auction and entertainment.
