£20,000 raised for Helen and Douglas House Children's Hospice by Savvy Group and local construction industry

Well done to the amazing team from across the Oxfordshire construction industry for raising £20,000 for Helen & Douglas House. The 10 prisoners were arrested for their crimes (really serious things such as 'always eating all the biscuits' or 'crimes of fashion'!) and locked up for the day to raise money for the children's hospice.

The day began with a breakfast for the criminals at Savvy Group offices in Horspath, after which they were 'arrested' and transported by Thames Valley Police to Oxford & Castle Prison. The prisoners then faced a judge who set a bail of £999, and freedom was only secured when the bail had been reached. To help them do this, prisoners were sent to their group cell with their laptops and mobile phones so that they can reach out to their networks.

A motley crew with hearts. Well done to Andrew Dicker of CALA Homes, Kelly Whitton of Blenheim Palace, Stephen Dunne of Savvy Group, Craig Cullimore of ADP Architecture, Charles Webster of Oxford Architects, Matthew Tromans of Oxford Architects, David Welbourne of Gray Baynes & Shew Architects, Kevin Bowerman of Maylarch, Katherine Harrison of Bidwells and Martin Dare of Oxford and Cambridge Properties.
