SHE’S nicked!

Charity volunteer Alison Crowther learned about life behind bars when she took part in a Jail and Bail stunt in aid of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Alison was arrested by cops and handcuffed before being bundled into the back of a police van and taken to Doncaster Prison.

There she was frisked, scanned and sniffed by drugs dogs, before being banged up in a prison cell in full institution uniform.

Prisoners cooked lunch and served it to Alison before she was eventually released for an impressive bail sum of £1,100 - all of which will go to the vital work of the North Anston facility with children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

She said: “It was a nerve-wracking experience but heaps of fun!

“A very big thank you goes to everyone who helped me raise a fantastic amount for Bluebell Wood, including Morrisons at Ecclesfield and Marks and Spencers at Meadowhall for their raffle prizes.”

Money was also raised through an evening of live music at Crookes Social Club in February. Acts included 4 Ever Young, John Keane, Time Smithies and Mo Andrews, Tom the Human Jukebox and Russ, who all performed for free.
