iData’s own James Wilson and Chris Quayle were amongst those taking part in a sponsored ‘Lock-Up’ at Mold police station on 9th March which presently looks like exceeding £8000, with iData raising £850 including gift aid.
Chris handed over iData's contribution to Debbie of Tenovus Cancer Care
James and Chris were joined by North Wales Police Chief Constable Carl Foulkes with 25 other volunteers taking part to experience life behind bars whilst raising money for Tenovus Cancer Care.
During the event, iData’s bosses had their fingerprints and mug shots taken, were given prison clothing to wear and had all home comforts taken away from them, include their mobile phones!
They were questioned by the police officers for “made-up” charges, fed microwaved prison food and put through their paces in the dingy exercise yard at the station.
The money raised from this event will help keep the charity’s services running. This means that the charity’s Cancer Support Advisors can continue to offer free financial advice, it’s Sing with Us Choirs can continue to provide support with a difference and nurses are just a phone call away, 365 days a year, for anyone affected by cancer.
