The Diabetes UK Eastern office is looking for teams of two or more people to take part in a Colchester charity ‘Jailbreak’ event on 27 and 28 October 2007, to raise much-needed funds for diabetes research.
Participants will be ‘released’ from Colchester Castle at 9am on the Saturday morning and will be given 24 hours to journey as far away from the Castle grounds as possible. However, the jailbirds will not be permitted to spend any of their own money and will have to discover other means to fund their flight for freedom.
"We are all really excited about this event and we are hoping it will generate a lot of support," said Nick Winch, Regional Fundraising Manager for Diabetes UK.
"All the money raised in the ‘jailbreak’ will help to fund vital diabetes research into finding a potential cure for the condition and will allow us to continue to provide crucial information and support for people with diabetes.”
Entrants must be over 18 and will need to raise as much sponsorship as possible for Diabetes UK.
