Bank manager goes to jail in aid of charity
11:22am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in Business news
THE branch manager of HSBC in York is to be jailed later this month to raise money for charity.
Nicola Jordan has been sentenced to a term of imprisonment at HMP Hull on October 24 for a series of dubious crimes submitted by her colleagues at the Parliament Street branch.
A class of school children from St Richards Primary formed a jury which decided her fate in an educational mock trial at the Old Magistrates Court.
Nicola will remain in prison until bail of £1,000 has been raised for Martin House Children’s Hospice.
Donations can be made for the initiative which is organised by Hull charity Smile Foundation at bossbehindbars.co.uk
Nicola said: “I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to raise money for Martin House in this unique way and to see what it is really like to be behind bars.”
