Jailbirds locked up for kids

EVERYONE in the Tweed City cell block was dancing to the jailhouse rock on Saturday after being “bailed out”.

Tweed MP Geoff Provest, Tweed Shire councillor Warren Polglase, Tweed Daily News general manager Geoff Jennings and Tweed Heads North Estate Agents principal Mark Humphries were locked up on Saturday at Tweed City Shopping Centre as part of a Tweed PCYC initiative.

The Tweed identities raised money for “bail” which went towards the Time 4 Kids initiative to help keep kids out of crime.

“I thought it was a great community event to be involved with,” Mr Jennings said. “Money raised will go towards the youth program to help keep kids stay out of crime.”

Mr Jennings said although he had noticed a few people lining up with rotten eggs and tomatoes, he had managed to get out of jail without being hit.
