TUESDAY, MAY 17: PRIDE Bermuda held its annual Celebrity Lock-Up on Friday as a fundraiser for the charity.

The lock-up took place at Washington House from 11:30am to 2pm.

Local celebrities included Bruce Barritt, Patrina ‘Power Girl’ Paynter, David Lang, Bob Flath, Kieval, ‘The Captain’ Burgess, Qian Dickinson, Mia Chambray, Terry Roberson, Stephen Woodward, Derek  Morris, and Nick DeCosta in absentia.

Tiny the Tree Frog was also publicly arrested, transported to jail, and tried in a mock courtroom.

Judith Burgess, PRIDE director, said: “The two previous events were such an incredible success, we had to do it again.

“The new location proved to be a hit with the public as the gallery was full, with standing room only.

“Some friends paid extra and requested a raise in bail to keep their celebrity in jail for a longer period.

“Judges Edward Dyer and David Knotman were wonderful, adding a great deal of humour to the occasion.”

The charity would like to thank the participants and all those who helped raise their bail.

The funds raised will go towards PRIDE Bermuda’s Student Assistance Program (SAP).

PRIDE Bermuda is a registered charity committed to drug prevention, education and awareness.
