On 26th March Chris Banks will be arrested by Special Constables for assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm to his computer.
Proclaiming his innocence, Chris Banks said " I had an urgent report to get out but every time I booted up my computer it gave me the dreaded blue screen. Finally I cracked under the intense provocation and in an instant found an entirely novel, and terminal way, of "booting up a computer". My foot has now healed but the computer is no more."
During the special "Jail and Bail" event, Chris will be taken into custody by special constables while attending a breakfast hosted by Penny Walkinshaw, High Sheriff of Cambridge, at which several other high-profile local figures will also be apprehended for various "offences". The suspects will then be taken to Cambridge Crown Court to be sentenced by Judge Gareth Hawkesworth; then taken to an undisclosed location until they have raised sufficient funds for the Ormiston Children and Families Trust to secure bail.
We need your help to obtain Chris's release on bail. Please go to
and make a donation to the Ormiston Children and Families Trust. If sufficient funds are raised Chris could be released and back with his wife, dog, cats and new Mac Air Book the same day.
Ormiston Children & Families Trust is the leading charity for children and young people in the East of England. We provide services to support children and young people from disadvantaged communities who face the very real dangers of social exclusion. Working across six counties and with over 40 projects, Ormiston raises funds for “unpopular” causes. Using vital knowledge about social issues at a grass roots level, we harness the expertise of our professionals to create change where it is really needed. We also run a number of children’s centres across East Anglia.
