The Norfolk Hospice Hold Up 2013

28th February 2013


About 6 years ago I was arrested whilst on air at KL.FM in aid of Norfolk Hospice Tapping House and today unbeknown to me it was to happen again.  I have to admit it was strange being asked to take Supertrooper Bear to work on the bus, but because I thought it would be fun, I agreed.

On arrival at King’s Lynn Bus Station I was greeted by the police and a host of others who had been arrested in the name of charity that morning too. See the actual moment Super Trooper’s criminal past caught up with him in the video below...

 Among the faces were the guys from Maze Media, All Signs, Lynnsport Bodyworks, King’s Lynn Corn Exchange, and Glebe House School andSystem Three Business Solutions.

 It was all very real, Supertrooper and I had our mug shots taken and were also finger printed at the old Gaol House before he was locked away and I was placed in the stocks. Norfolk HospiceThe only thing I was allowed to do was make phone calls and lots of them to find enough money to ensure our freedom.  I’d like to say a Massive “thank you’” to the following amazing people and business in West Norfolk.
