Top business men and women from Morecambe and Lancaster will be thrown into the cells for CancerCare later this month. They will need to raise at least £500 to bail themselves out.

Putting their freedom on the line in the ‘Jail and Bail’ event will be solicitors, restauranteurs, even a multi-millionaire businessman.

‘Jail and Bail’ takes place on Tuesday, October 22 at the Lancaster Castle prison.

Every year, CancerCare helps over 1,500 people cope with the overwhelming changes that can come with a cancer diagnosis. They work with people affected by cancer and give them a place to talk, therapies to help them manage the physical effects of cancer treatment and the support to deal with anxiety and emotional distress about diagnosis or recurrence.

Jail and Bail is part of CancerCare’s Challenge 30 Appeal to raise £30,000 in 30 weeks.
