Guilty! David Warburton could be locked up for charity

Frome MP David Warburton has been nominated as an inmate for a 24-hour prison lock-in to raise money for SOS Africa. 

Courtesy of City & Country, for the first and only time, SOS Africa is empowering 200 lucky individuals with the authority to ‘nominate an inmate’ of their choice and sentence them to 24hrs imprisonment in HMP Shepton Mallet this October.

Dr Matt Crowcombe, Frome resident and founder of the SOS Africa charity based in Shepton Mallet said, “It has been an incredible two weeks since the launch. We have already recruited 120 inmates out of a possible 200 from all over the UK. It has been the busiest few days in the charity’s history.

“We are delighted that David has joined us without hesitation.” You can donate via his fundraising page.

“We would love to have as many local people involved as possible so if you are interested please get in touch before places run out.” For more details visit
