The second annual Jail and Bail fundraiser for the United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk will be held in Haldimand outside of the Cayuga Foodland, 18 Talbot St. E., on Sept. 12 from 2 to 4 p.m.

“United Way provides funds to programs that provide life-changing services to Haldimand and Norfolk residents,” said Brittany Burley, the organization’s executive director.

“We need your help to make this fundraiser a success. We are looking for community members to volunteer to be locked up for a good cause.”

Volunteers will be ‘jailed’ for up to two hours or until their bail is raised. Jailbirds will set their own bail and can sign up as an individual outlaw or as a team of criminal masterminds. Volunteers will confess to various crimes from trafficking caffeine to theft of office pens.

Last year, close to $15,000 was raised for social programs, including counselling, support for individuals and families with disabilities, programming for children and seniors, youth and adult literacy programs and more.

Those interested in becoming a jailbird can contact Judy for more information at or by calling 519-426-5660.
