The SLH Group’s Chief Executive, Julie Fadden, got arrested, fingerprinted and locked up in November – but all for a good cause.
Julie was nominated to face a mock arrest by Merseyside Police Officers to raise funds for the Prince’s Trust, along with another 20 business leaders across Liverpool.
Julie spent 20 hours in custody, but not before she was handcuffed at the SLH office and driven in a police van to Belle Vale station where she had her mugshot and fingerprints taken. She was also interviewed by Officers about her behaviour in the workplace, with evidence provided by SLH colleagues!
The more money Julie raised the longer she stayed locked up and unfortunately for Julie colleagues, family and friends dug deep to raise almost £2000 for charity which meant she spent overnight in a cell.
Julie took it all in good spirit, “The Prince's Trust is a cause that’s close to my heart. They do amazing work supporting young, vulnerable people right on our doorsteps and I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to personally raise money for this very worthy cause. Saying that, it was very realistic; the Police gave their own time to do this and they treated us very professionally giving us a real flavour of life inside.
"I would urge everybody to make a plan to do something different in 2015 that raises money for those less fortunate than ourselves – a small thing that can make a massive difference.”
There is still time to donate to The Prince's Trust through Julie’s Just Giving Page.
