The magistrate, North Lake resident and PCYC President Dr Sue Gordon, said the event would raise important funds for children’s programs.

Fremantle’s PCYC will hold the fundraiser this Friday, with community and corporate leaders taking on the role of prisoners to raise awareness and funds for PCYC WA.

Time4Kids will take place during this year’s National Youth Week, with volunteers bailed out of the makeshift jail cell for $500.

‘The fun element of bailing out people should make people think that while we are doing it for fun and to raise money, we have to constantly come up with ways to raise money for our programs,’ Dr Gordon said.

‘Bailing out a retired magistrate for a few hundred dollars could satisfy some quirky people as well.

‘Or, if they want to leave me in for a bit longer than my allotted time, I will do it for a decent donation.’
