ESCAPED 'convicts' will be bursting out of Burnham Police Station in an exciting charity challenge.

ESCAPED 'convicts' will be bursting out of Burnham Police Station in an exciting charity challenge.

Teams kitted out in striped T-shirts and swag bags competing in Jail Break 2010 will try and get as far away from Burnham as possible in 24 hours - to raise money for Weston Hospicecare.

The Uphill-based charity is now recruiting 'criminals', who will have to blag their own transport, as they cannot spend any money.

Those wanting to get the edge over the competition should start planning their escape now, in order to stand a chance of winning the 'Hidden Loot' prizes.

Top treats will be given out for the furthest distance travelled, the most sponsorship raised and the most unusual final destination.

Businesses interested in sponsoring the event are also urged to contact the hospice fund-raising team.

Staff at the Fox and Goose in Brent Knoll have already signed up to the event - and posed in jail uniforms for our photo.

Entry is just £10 and entry forms are available on the link below.

The event will take place on February 27/28. Participants will be 'arrested' at 10am on the Saturday before they escape from jail.
