Master Glass Seller's Jailed and Bailed Fund

Gwenllian Rhys

My page:


I've been invited by the Lord Mayor, Alderman Alan Yarrow and the Lady Mayoress to be Jailed & Bailed at The Tower on 19 June.


The day starts at 10.30am with coffee in the Mansion House but I'll hardly have time to drink it before The City of London Police will arrest me - goodness knows what the charges will be (but you know, I don't always behave myself!) - and I'll be transported to The Tower where I'll remain until I reach my Bail sum of £1000.

What's more, I'm on water rations (courtesy of Pol Roger) which I suspect may be sparkling.

I lunched with the Judges at the Old Bailey at the end of March and took the opportunity to ask their advice.  "Remember you're innocent until proved guilty" they said, but as for helping me get out of Jail,  I strongly suspect they're in cahoots with the City Police and I'm not sure they'll be of much help to me on the day so I'm relying on YOU to get me out.

I've Women in the City to run and, more importantly, a cat (who thinks he IS the Lord Mayor) to feed and lots of exciting Livery events to attend in the coming months.

Your donation will help secure my release and support the British Red Cross in all its good work.


 Bail is set at £1000

but I know with your help

I'll raise MUCH MORE!!!!
