Has your boss’ failure to do the brew round irked you for the final time?

Have you ever wanted to see your boss behind bars?

If the answers to these questions are "yes", Jailbreak is the answer to ensuring justice is served.

For the first time ever, Bury Hospice is presenting a brand new event that sees local employees take control.

Taking place on Friday, April 5, at Bury Hospice, Jailbreak 2024 is a fun and engaging event that challenges bosses who’ve been nominated (because of their workplace notoriety), to raise £1,000 for the hospice - from behind bars.

Jailbreak gives employees (from various organisations), the opportunity to lock their bosses up for the "crimes" they commit in the workplace or otherwise.

Company directors will be "arrested", "sentenced", and "imprisoned" in jail for their wrongdoings.

The only way they’ll be set free is if they each raise £1,000 in aid of the hospice.

Lara Partridge, director of income generation and marketing at the hospice, is nominated by her colleagues to go before the judge.

Most notably, she has been charged with "committing crimes against fundraisers and having visions beyond the comprehension of the rest of the team".

Lara is just one of a group of local people facing "charges".

Their fates will be decided, and the accused "criminals" will be lead to their cells, donning prisoner uniforms.

Armed with only a phone full of contacts, the sole way the "prisoners" can regain freedom is by relying on the generosity of the people they know to help them stump up the much-needed bail funds for the hospice.

Nina Camplin, corporate fundraiser at Bury Hospice, said: “Fundraising should be fun; this enjoyable scenario allows employees to nominate their managers - all for our great cause.

“It’s been great to hear the many comical reasons why bosses should be locked up; Jailbreak has been a great way of inciting team spirit.”

Jailbreak takes place at 10.30am on Friday, April 5 at the hospice. Keep an eye on the hospice Facebook feed for updates on the day.
