No money, no phone calls, just handcuffs, swag bags and an escape…
….this is our Charity Jailbreak Challenge!
The Jailbreak Challenge is back for 2017 helping to raise money for the Check-A-Trade Foundation who are supporting the Sussex Snowdrop Trust once again! We are looking for teams of four to take part again on Sunday 7th May.
A Richardsons coach will be waiting to take you from Fontwell Park Racecourse to prison, you and your team of four will be handcuffed together (not locked though and in pairs) and we also ask you to dress to impress!
Your prison warden on the coach is in fact a double agent and has been instructed to help you escape en route and will drop you off at a secret and unknown location. You then have to make your way to the ‘hideout’ without spending any money or using your mobile phone. You will need to use your wit and powers of persuasion to blag some free transport.
All prisoners will be given a swag bag to help them on their way which will include hints and tips on how to get to the hideout. #jailbreak – use social media to help too!
We will also be presenting live throughout the day, following teams and finding out about your progress. Our listeners will be encouraged to give you some help, to look out for you and phone in when they see you!
We'll also have some great prizes on offer; Best Route Back, Best Dressed Team, Fastest Team Back and one for the Last Team Back!
