THEIR mission – which they have accepted – is to get as far away from Hampshire without any cash or use of phones.

Naomi House children’s hospice’s chief executive Chris Robinson, along with his partner in crime, Peter Heath, will be taking part in a jailbreak exercise on Tuesday.

The pair will be taken to an undisclosed location by Hampshire Constabulary, dropped off, and will then have just 12 hours to make their escape.

They will not be permitted to carry money, credit or debit cards or telecommunication devices.

All they can have are the clothes on their backs and a letter stating that they are not mad – they are just fundraising for Naomi House.

Their goal is to put as much distance between themselves and Hampshire using only their gift of the gab, charm, wits and resourcefulness..

The hospice, near Winchester, supports children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

Money will help to fund the essential care and support the charity provides to children, which includes the Portsmouth area.
