Lock Up & Sleep In for Samaritans

Lock Up 2016
The Lock Up & Sleep In event will be held at the end of 2016 at Maitland Gaol.The aim of the event is to raise funds for Samaritans post-release services, some of which do not receive Government funding and rely on donations to continue operating.  Friendship House, Recovery Point and Home for Good are programs to assist people who are leaving prison to re-engage with the community or for those on Community Service Orders to gain access to services and programs.

Corporate sponsors and community members are invited to Sleep In and raise money through people sponsoring your efforts of being “locked up” in Maitland Gaol for one night.

If you don’t want to be “locked up” overnight you can still participate by attending the dinner, which includes a ghost tour.
