 What am I doing?

On 5th December 2019 I will be spending 24 hours in a custody cell with the States of Jersey Police.  As a Centenier for the Parish of St Saviour, and having never spent time in a custody cell, I thought this would be a good challenge for me to do.  I will be treated the same as any other prisoner in custody, meaning no TV, mobile phone and won't have anyone to talk to!! Oh, and I forgot to mention I am claustrophobic!!

So why am I doing this?

A friend of mine's son is currently going through cancer for a second time and he is only 11 years of age.  I am doing this as I would like to raise much needed funds for CLIC Sargent Jersey and raise awareness of what they do and how they help families deal with loved ones going through cancer.

CLIC Sargent fights tirelessly to stop cancer destroying young lives.  They provide clinical, practical and emotional support to help young children and young people cope with cancer and get the most out of life.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
Every little bit helps
