These Glasgow Uni third years made it to Fuertaventura on no cash for charity

GUCFS Jailbreak has raised over £3,000 so far

Over the weekend Glasgow University Charity Fashion Show held their first Jailbreak fundraising event, raking in over £3,000 for the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity and travelling over 10,000 kilometres between them.

Seven teams took part in the 36 hour event, made up of two or three participants.

Furthest to travel were Molly Barrass and Sophie Bruce who made it 3,148km, all the way to the Fuertaventura in the Canary Islands.

That's actually really bloody impressive

The teams set off at 11am on Friday morning, tasked with getting as far away as they could from Glasgow University Union as possible within 36 hours.

They weren't allowed to spend any of their own money throughout the duration of the challenge.

To fund their travels, teams resorted to bucket collections, donations and appealing to companies for free travel or discounted.

Teams travelled all over the UK and Europe by hitchhiking, bus, train, ferry and plane.

On a side note, a handcrafted GUCFS star decoration went missing from the Jailbreak afterparty at the GUU on Saturday night and members of the society have made an appeal for its safe return.

If you know anything about the whereabouts of the star please get in touch with The Tab Glasgow or GUCFS president Jocelyn Gilmour.
