This year’s event takes place on 20 February 2014 but the hospice need volunteers to sign up now. All "inmates" will be asked to raise £500 "bail money" before being released at the end of the day.
Local magistrate Liz Hepworth from Dronfield who took part in the event last year said: “Jail was a new experience for me, I had been responsible for sending people there as a magistrate but never been locked up myself.
