THE manager of Bellshill and Mossend YMCA is facing a jail sentence at the end of this month - but it’s all in a good cause.

Colin MacFarlane has reluctantly volunteered to be locked up in a prison cell for 12 hours to raise funds for the organisation’s work with vulnerable young people.

On Saturday, March 24, Colin will be ‘taken into custody’ at Wishaw Police Station and locked up without any home comforts to endure a night in the cells.
